In Cockpit, the initial admin user created at FBX startup, isn’t listed under accounts, and doesn’t seem to have admin privileges. It cannot alter the existing accounts, cannot format or set up raid in storage, and appears to not be able to run software updates - “Failed to obtain authentication” (updates can be run through plinth or terminal). On the Plinth side, the user has ALL the groups and privileges.
Steps to Reproduce
- Login to FreedomBox
- Go to Cockpit > Accounts
- Try to edit (add or remove) accounts
- Expect to see all users (at least the main admin) listed.
- Expect to be able to edit (add/remove) accounts
Screen popup/infotext stating “The user xxx is not permitted to modify accounts”
To be certain, in terminal I added the user to the sudo group, but this didn’t change anything.
