Changed in trousers (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

I find that a restart solves the issue. (sudo apt-get install trousers -> exit code 137 -> sudo reboot -> installed on reboot)
I shouldn't have to restart though.

Same as above. The problem appears to be due to an error in the postinstall script, which references "udevd" instead of "systemd-udevd".

Fixed via this chef recipe, but should really be fixed in the package:
