chgrp/chmod failed to change non-existing keys (dapper)

Bug #34962 reported by Luis Mondesi on 2006-03-14
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ssl-cert (Ubuntu)
Fabio Massimo Di Nitto

Bug Description

To reproduce:

apt-get --purge remove ssl-cert (which removes postfix in my case)

apt-get install postfix ssl-cert

chgrp: cannot access '/etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key': No such file or directory
chmod reports the same thing

the whole process fails.

I can't reproduce this, for what it's worth. If the snakeoil key is deleted, we seem to happily create a new one on reinstall...

Does the following (as root) create '/etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key' on your system?

# make-ssl-cert generate-default-snakeoil

I have been playing for about 2 hours apt-get installing, manual cracking certs and so on and i still can't reproduce this bug. I am rejecting it for now since there have been no more info. If it happens please provide the info you have been asked.
