Tried both of your suggestions but unfortunatly neither worked sorry.
Went onto your link and read it but could not relate any of it to what I see on my screen.
Just done another upgrade whit the same results. Tried apt-get install libacl* but that much came up that I did not proceed with the install as I was not sure what it would do.
Anyway thanks for the help so far
