git_daemon disappeared during update

Trying to install git in a FreeBSD 12.2 jail produced this error

Turns out it's not unusal, and it probably means that your password database is out of sync with /etc/passwd.

One solution is to simply run vipw, save and exit without making any changes.

vipw natually opens vi as the editor, once open all you need to do is save & exit using the command :wq (that's colon, lower case 'w', lower case 'q')

Once returned to the prompt, retry the pkg command and it should be successful.
