I guess that's an errno number, and in that case 45 is
EOPNOTSUPP (Operation not supported).  It is a bug that
the errno number is not printed as a human-readable

Did you try to use Quota::query?  Does it work?

According to the p5-Quota documentation, the Quota::sync
function is not supported on all platforms, so it's
perfectly possible that the p5-Quota code supports it
on Linux, but not on FreeBSD.
