Package: passwd
Version: 1:
Severity: normal


I've upgraded the passwd package to Sid today and I've received this mail from anacron:

cp: cannot stat `group': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `gshadow': No such file or directory
run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/passwd exited with return code 1

I think someone has forgot the path of the source in the 8th row of the script. It seems to work replacing

    cp -p $FILE ...


    cp -p /etc/$FILE ...
