Bug Description

In testing the maas packages I tried removing them all, and saw an error when maas-rack-controller tries to remove the maas user if that user already has been removed by other package removal scripts.

This is strange. I've looked into this and the only place in package where we do actually remove the 'maas' user is in the maas-common package. This package has not changed in a while, and checks for the user before it actually attempts to remove it. I'll dig into this further.

Done.
The group `maas' does not exist.
