My suggestion:

Open a terminal (bash or your shell of preference).

Go to /etc/postinstall

Edit each of the scripts, adding "-x" to the end of the "shebang" line.

Run the script.

That should show you what command is giving the error.  The error message
may also indicate why it is giving the error.

For what it's worth (probably not much), my experience was related to
permissions.  However, you may have an unrelated cause, so consider other

If an application seems to be working OK, or you figure out the problem and
correct it manually (without the script) you might consider renaming to to get setup to stop trying to run the script.

Good luck,
