Is this an error?

groupadd -g 42000 share
chown nfsnobody /home/export <----- I get an error with this line.

Thanks.

    The user minimal-access user may be "nfsnobody" or "nobody", the distributions may use either one. Check your /etc/passwd file to confirm.

    Thank you for pointing this out it will be corrected. Could please verify which distribution you are using?

    I am using Raspberry Pi OS (Debian Buster).

    I have had the same issue on Ubuntu 18.04.

    It's a shame I just spent half an hour fault-finding an issue, that wouldn't have been an issue if,
    "The user minimal-access user may be "nfsnobody" or "nobody", the distributions may use either one. Check your /etc/passwd file to confirm." had been mentioned in the lab.
