[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#374457: passwd: postinstall "install" path does not exist

Package: passwd
Version: 1:4.0.15-10
Severity: normal

The postinstall script has:

case "$1" in

    [ "x$2" = "x" ] && shadowconfig on

exit 0

but "install" is not a documented argument to postinst (only preinst
accepts it).  This seems to have originated with the solution to
#316219 and/or #319138.  You might just use:

  [ -z "$2" ] && shadowconfig
