Missing Azure AD Connect groups

When attempting to upgrade  Azure AD Connect message "Group with name ADSyncadmins was not found in the Machine Context" is displayed.

This blog says just go create the necessaryy AD groups.

But why aren't they already there?

I'm upgrading from existing version: 1.1.484.0 to the new Version 1.1.654.0.

Version 1.1.4 requires these groups also - by the looks.

you are asking a hard question. there can be some reason like
1. some one delete it
2. you use a custom installation and specify a AD group instead a local group.

Anyway, I would say you have a good way to move forward. so i won't bother to ask why.
Even Microsoft Premier support don't provide root-cause analysis. they are break-fix type.

IF you have previous installation log, maybe you can pull out and look but those would not be helpful.

OP has a way to move forward and the question is more a root cause where is not possible to find out why
