I don't think you are the first person who wants to add a package to image after
the image has been built :)

The obvious problem would have been leading spaces in IMAGE_INSTALL_append but
you explicitly stated its correct. Normally, the class that's responsible for
image creation (image.bbclass) depends on the packages defined in IMAGE_INSTALL
so that the packages are built before the image creation begins.

image.bbclass, line 9

On irc (#oe), Eric Benard tried IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " trace-cmd" after a full
build and reported that it built fine. I'm CCing him.
Have you also tried this?

IMAGE_INSTALL_append += "foo"


I believe that it will be better to include your <image> file and the files that
you changed so that it will be easier to debug. Mentioning your layers,
configuration, version of Yocto you use will also be helpful.
