Error - mpd daemon: cannot init supplementary groups of user - SOLVED!

If you get this error, comment out the "user" section as follows in your $HOME/.mpdconf file (see the section highlighted in yellow):
# This setting specifies the user that MPD will run as. MPD should never run as
# root and you may use this setting to make MPD change its user ID after
# initialization. This setting is disabled by default and MPD is run as the
# current user.
#
#user                            "_mpd"

Verification:
After restarting mpd, you should not get the aforementioned error message again.
