For last few days, whatever software installtion/uninstallation I do with apt-get/software center it is getting ended up with message:

Setting up initramfs-tools (0.103ubuntu0.8) ...
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.8.0-32-generic
E: /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/fuse failed with return 1.
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-3.8.0-32-generic with 1.
dpkg: error processing initramfs-tools (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
 initramfs-tools
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

But the installtion/uninstalltion of softwares seems to be happen successfully.

Could anyone suggest a possible fix for this?

Thanks
