Mondoarchive is trying to create a partition to backup your data on /dev/sdb.  
It is trying to create and prepare /dev/sdb1, but it is running into a problem 
and gracefully quitting and letting you know about it.  See above where it 
says "ERROR:"  That is telling you the step that is going wrong.  So, what is 
on /dev/sdb?  Can you just delete the existing partitions and try again?  That 
will very likely solve your problem.
