I've got an odd problem, that probably deserves a bug report, but I
don't know where to start looking for evidence.

I'm running openSUSE 15.0 "transactional server" on a vps. I had freenet
daemon installed, running as a dedicated "freenet" user.

What happened is that the "freenet" user suddenly disappeared. It's not
mentioned in /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow nor /etc/group. If I do "ls -l" in
/home/freenet, there are numbers instead of owner and group. Service
obviously fails to start.

I had a look at logs, but there's nothing alarming.

Do you have any clues, what could go wrong?

No. If you are using btrfs with snapshots enabled you may compare
previous snapshots; this may provide better information when it happened
which will allow more targeted log analysis.

In snapshots there's nothing wrong. The last shapshot has "freenet" user
in /etc/passwd. But the problem I see is that, unlike on normal openSUSE
installation, "transactional server" makes no "post" snapshots. And it
looks like the last update broke freenet. In logs, exactly after
transactional-update made a new shapshot, when shutting down, systemd
complains about freenet user.

The update was also not very interesting: just wireguard-kmp-default and
wireguard-tools from network:vpn:wireguard were updated to 0.0.20190123.

Recent logs for freenet service:

Systemd service file:
# /etc/systemd/system/freenet.service
Description=FreeNet Service
ExecStart=/home/freenet/Freenet/ start
ExecStop=/home/freenet/Freenet/ stop
