todays man update in tw fails on 4 of 5 tw boxes with:
Output of man-2.7.6-5.1.x86_64.rpm %posttrans script:
mandb: can't create a temporary filename: Permission denied

the box that succeeds was installed last month. others quite old.

output of "mandb -t" here:

does it need bug report?

Here it works:
rm -rf /var/cache/man/*
rpm -Uhv home/abuild/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/man-2.7.6-0.x86_64.rpm

- Make /var/ache/man a real directory as in system-user-man the

directory is gone

prob was perms, /var/cache/man was root:root, s/b man:man


but I would have expected that systemd-user-man would handle that on install.
