An error occurred

The following details are provided:
E: system-tools-backends: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1



Please assist to fix this minor annoyance.

Thanks for the help!

I ran what you suggested and the following is the output

me@me-desktop ~/Desktop $ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up system-tools-backends (2.6.0-1ubuntu1.1) ...
* Starting System Tools Backends system-tools-backends invoke-rc.d: initscript system-tools-backends, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing system-tools-backends (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
system-tools-backends

So I guess that didn't work :cry:
