Install nginx 1.25.0 from http://nginx.org/packages/mainline/debian on debian 12,
get a warning "adduser: Warning: The home dir /nonexistent you specified can't be accessed: No such file or directory" in process.
And cat /etc/passwd also get "nginx:x:103:109:nginx user,:/nonexistent:/bin/false"
Is it a bug?

It seems adduser is now a bit more picky about what is supplied to it. It doesnt do harm, however I can see how this warning can be scary.

That said, it's probably best to change to useradd/groupadd instead for Debian since adduser/addgroup are no longer in the "base system"... I'll work on it.

Fixed in https://hg.nginx.org/pkg-oss/rev/985feef07c70 - will be available in 1.25.2 packages.
