issue with Building in a clean chroot

I've been building AUR packages in a clean chroot for a long time, but it started to fail recently. So, I deleted the entire chroot directory and tried to make a new one following the wiki: … nience_way

  1. $ mkdir ~/chroot

  2. $ CHROOT=$HOME/chroot

  3. mkarchroot $CHROOT/root base-devel

I'm getting the following error on the last step:

( 6/11) Creating system user accounts...
( 7/11) Creating temporary files...
( 8/11) Reloading device manager configuration...
  Skipped: Device manager is not running.
( 9/11) Arming ConditionNeedsUpdate...

Failed to chown() cgroup /sys/fs/cgroup/systemd/user.slice/user-1000.slice/session-1.scope/payload: No such file or directory

There is a solution mentioned here:

Removing "--keep-unit" from /usr/bin/arch-nspawn in combination with chmod a+rwX /var/lib/archbuild/extra-x86_64 made "sudo extra-x86_64-build" work again. (I am not recommending a+rwX on a general basis).

Thanks to sangy for the tip about removing "--keep-unit".

Can anyone explain what is causing the problem and how this solves it?

Re: issue with Building in a clean chroot

I don't know, but logging out and logging in again usually fixes it for me. If the problem manifests, I believe it's usually the result of updating systemd and then having a stale logind session slice.
