Changing the default shell

Download the required package:
apk add libuser

If you do not have files:
/etc/login.defs
/etc/default/useradd

We will need to create them

touch /etc/login.defs
touch /etc/default/useradd

Now we can change our default shell

If you want to change the current user's shell:
lchsh

If you want to change a different user's shell:
lchsh USERNAME
