Upstream has updated the db schema. You have to run "powershell-empire --reset"

I have added an information about this in the package: see /usr/share/doc/powershell-empire/NEWS.Debian.gz

I have tested this now, but unfortunately it doesn't work (at least for me). See Screenshot.

Don't run the reset db with sudo if you usually run powershell-empire without sudo:
the database is located in ~/.local/powershell-empire/

If you run the reset with sudo, it will reset / setup the database in /root/.local/powershell-empire.

And after, if you run powershell-empire without sudo, it will use the database in /home/current-user/.local/powershell-empire

OK, that works! I have just tested it and it starts normal, after creating the database scheme new. Thx so far.
