How Do You Troubleshoot This Error: “no limited resources used”?

Problem scenario
You run quota -g foobar where "foobar" is the name of the group you want a quota to apply to. But you get this: "Disk quotas for group foobar: no limited resources used"

What should you do?

Possible solution
Run a command like this:
sudo quotacheck -gm /path/to/filesystem

(Don't use the -u flag if you have no user quota configured.)

Now try the quota -g foobar command again.
