COMMENTS

According to the conjecture in A242266, a(n) should be positive for all n > 1.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 5 since 5 = 2 + 3 < 7 is a primitive root mod prime(4) = 7 but 2 is not.

MATHEMATICA

f[0]=0

f[n_]:=Prime[n]+f[n-1]

dv[n_]:=Divisors[n]

Do[Do[If[f[k]>=Prime[n], Goto[cc]]; Do[If[Mod[f[k]^(Part[dv[Prime[n]-1], i]), Prime[n]]==1, Goto[aa]], {i, 1, Length[dv[Prime[n]-1]]-1}]; Print[n, " ", f[k]]; Goto[bb]; Label[aa]; Continue, {k, 1, n}]; Label[cc]; Print[n, " ", 0]; Label[bb]; Continue, {n, 1, 80}]
