It=E2=80=99s probably a good idea to mention steps to reproduce the issue. W=

A =E2=80=9ECore Linux utility adduser=E2=80=9D doesn=E2=80=99t exist. What d=

ly isn=E2=80=99t the only distro that doesn=E2=80=99t provide an =E2=80=9Cad=
duser=E2=80=9D utility at all, by official repositories, https://archlinux.o=
rg/packages/?q=3Dadduser ,
oups#Example_adding_a_user . While Ubuntu does provide this helper, it=E2=80=
