This is the command it was trying to run
So run "/bin/run-parts --verbose /etc/cron.daily" and see where the
error is occurring. Then take the offending scripts from
/etc/cron.daily/* and turn on debugging (for example add set -x near the
top of the script) so that you can see what is going wrong.
Then report a bug against the appropriate package.
