Following latest file update it respects seccomp now and fails with the following error: Bad system call

The flag -S is required to avoid it and bypass seccomp.

@syrenity Could you explain further, please?

Debtap broke following file package update, now requires adding the -S parameter to bypass the seccomp restrictions.
