Usually the user/group should be created by the Debian apt package. We had a similar case on GitHub. https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/4244

Unfortunately the user never really reply to our questions

I don't know what's happening, I didn't find anything on the issue.

Why do you post on GitHub as well as on the forum. Pls try to stick to a single platform as it doesn't make sense to post your issue twice. This just increase our efforts. Thanks for understanding.
