The easiest way to fix this is probably to run "dpkg --purge samba4" in a terminal to uninstall Samba 4. We are also working on an update which fixes this particular error.

Samba 4 is an experimental version of Samba. If you just need file sharing, I would recommend using the "samba" package (Samba 3) instead.
