Does the error give you any problems? If not, just click 'Ignore future problems of this type' and click Continue. It's probably a bug with no fix if you can't find any on Google. – Ads20000 Apr 26 '13 at 8:52
@Ads20000 the OS works fine otherwise. I can ignore the error. I was just not sure if this is caused due to some package missing or something that is not executed properly. – Raghunandan Apr 26 '13 at 8:54
Well, normally dependencies are fine with default programs, so I assume that it is just something that wasn't executed properly. – Ads20000 Apr 26 '13 at 8:58
@Ads20000 is there any fix if this is a bug. I had a option to report the same. I did. – Raghunandan Apr 26 '13 at 9:51
It doesn't look like there is a fix sorry. – Ads20000 Apr 26 '13 at 10:11

Workaround to prevent the message appearing:

Press "Ignore Future Problem of This type", and you will prevent the message showing every time you do it. There is no known fix for this error found by searching.

For those of you who edit my Answer: What is the problem being polite? It's not against the rules, neither any topics or information tells me to prevent being polite. Thanks – denNorske Apr 26 '13 at 14:12
