Bug Description

chown: invalid group: `root:messagebus'
dpkg: error processing dbus (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

This error paralyzes any further attempts to install anything.

The messagebus line in chroot's /etc/passwd looks like this:
