Description

While working to build a cosmosis_ups product stack, we happened to create an incorrect binary installation tarball for the fftw product for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The cosmosis_ups product depends upon fftw.
With the defective fftw, it seems that setup -B cosmosis_ups v1_5_0 -q e17:prof returns status 0, even though it prints error messages and does not set up fftw.

I have been able to reproduce this error by doing an installation of the cosmosis_ups umbrella product, then removing the directory into which fftw was put (thus simulating the broken product), and then doing the setup of cosmosis_ups.
