I’ve currently booted into recovery mode, because I removed my sole user from admin :/
When I run
adduser oadams admin, I get
gpasswd: cannot lock /etc/group; try again later.
For what it’s worth,
ls /etc/ | grep "lock", returns only
mtab.fuselock, so there’s nothing to delete.
How can I get my user back in the admin group?
Here is Solutions:
We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.
Check that you are root
Check that the root partition is mounted read-write
If you see that your partition is mounted as ro (read-only), try remounting it as rw
mount -o remount,rw /
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
