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.
Leave the first remark and get the conversation going!
