Hey Leo — I have a groups/init.sls state file that I run on all my minions to make sure the sudo group exists. I wonder if Ubuntu 16.04 doesn't ship this with group anymore.

group-sudo:
  group.present:
    - name: sudo
root

Hi Russell, Thanks for the reply! The strange thing with this error is that 'sudo' is a default group on Ubuntu (as a Debian derivative).

Yeah, I would try adding a state to make sure the sudo group exists.

SaltStack builds a sort of graph of state dependencies. This error appears to relate not to the actual sudo group but to the fact that the sudo group isn't listed in SaltStack's dependency tree.

It's harmless to add a state to ensure the sudo group exists. SaltStack will do nothing if it exists.
