systemd installation fails with pacstrap through the base group

Hi!

I'm experiencing a very weird issue. I'm trying to install the base package with pacstrap on a ext4 drive in VirtualBox with te following command :

pacstrap -P -K /groovyarcade base

When pacman processes the systemd installation, I have a waterfall of errors. The first one is the following, and happens right before adding all users :

Failed to write /etc/machine-id: Bad file descriptor

Then it's a waterfall of errors, the complete pacstrap log is at https://bpa.st/C24YU, starts once packages have been downloaded.

Re: systemd installation fails with pacstrap through the base group

was the filesystem empty before running pacstrap?

Re: systemd installation fails with pacstrap through the base group

Same to me, probably new little bug. More errors:

Failed to write /etc/machine-id: Bad file descriptor
Failed to copy permissions from /etc/group to /etc/.#group5ac29d18b484ee94: No such file or directory
chgrp: invalid group: `systemd-journal-remote`
Failed to resolve user 'dbus': No such process

There is a new bug posted realted to this issue.

Seems like the systemd 254.2-1 is causing the issue.

Fixed in 254.3-1, only in core-testing for now

Re: systemd installation fails with pacstrap through the base group
