Description of problem:
sss_override user-export fails

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up an LDAP provider
2. Create an user override:
3. Restart sssd
4. Try to export the user overrides

Actual results:
# sss_override user-export /var/lib/sss/backup/sssd_user_overrides.bak

# echo $?

# ls -la /var/lib/sss/backup/sssd_user_overrides.bak
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 0  6. Sep 09:04

Expected results:
sss_override should not fail to export.

Additional information:
It would be great, if sss_override user-export tells the user when it fails. I
only discovered this bug, because I wanted to remove the SSSD cache. Otherwise
I had not seen that it generates just an empty file and fails. The "sssctrl
cache-remove" command validates the result of the backup:
# sssctl cache-remove
SSSD must not be running. Stop SSSD now? (yes/no) [yes]
Creating backup of local data...
SSSD backup of local data already exist, override? (yes/no) [no] yes
Error while executing external command
Unable to export group overrides
Unable to create backup of local data, can not remove the cache.
