I also get posts from the "current" list. Maybe it was there I saw it.
Anyhow now I am recalling from memory what the fix was about. This may
help point you in the correct direction. As I recall this problem dealt
with the directory location of where ezjail processes the update
command. The fix was a patch to the source of the ezjail script. The
patch source was included in the body of the post. It also said there
was a PR about it but the poster could not find it. He had only read the
PR titles and nothing about this problem popped out at him. The PR
titles may be misleading so all open ezjail PRs may have to be read.
If you find yourself between a rock and a hard place I suggest you try
qjail. It's a fork of ezjail and uses the new jail.conf nethod of
defining jails instead of the old outdated rc.conf method used by
ezjail. Moving to qjail will eliminate those warning messages for every
jail ezjail starts.
