I tested if adduser command is now working, but I still have the same 
In detail:
1. Created a new system image with ubuntu-device-flash:
  ubuntu-device-flash core 15.04 -o "$1" --size 14 --channel edge --oem 
beagleblack --developer-mode
2. Programmed my sd-card
3. After booting the system and login with default ubuntu account: sudo 
adduser testuser

The result:
[sudo] password for ubuntu:
Adding user `testuser`...
Adding new group `testuser' (1001) ...
groupadd: cannot lock /etc/group; try again later.
adduser: `/usr/sbin/groupadd -g 1001 testuser' returned error code 10.
