Bug Description

I was installing Boot Repair through terminal when I came across the issue:

Processing triggers for menu (2.1.47ubuntu4) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
  accountservice
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

 I am not sure if this is a common problem, but I am reporting the "bug" just in case of other users. Sorry, I am not sure what I can really provide, seeing that it is only recently I have been using Ubuntu and I am not quite excellent with computers.
