Quantum-common install fails?


We're running a multi-node Openstack environment (Grizzly) on Ubuntu 12.04. Recently, when adding a compute node to the cluster, the following error occurs when installing quantum-common:

Setting up quantum-common (2012.1-0ubuntu4) ...
Adding system user `quantum' (UID 110) ...

                                                                                                          Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

The quantum-plugin-openvswitch-agent also fails because of its dependency on quantum-common.

We've tried creating /etc/quantum manually and installing the package, however the directory remains empty.

This bug was reportedly fixed in version 2012.1-0ubuntu3 in April of 2012.

Our cluster was initially set up using the guide here:

We've been following these instructions to add compute nodes in the past without issue.

Has anyone else been experiencing this, or have any insight into what's happening?
