Rachid, did you try fixing the /run directories?

There's a transition happening from /var/run to /run see bug #807306. In my case the update that was supposed to handle this transition didn't work.

You need to
(i) create directories /run and /run/lock,
(ii) move contents of /var/run into /run and /var/lock into /run/lock,
(iii) delete directories /var/run and /var/lock
(iv) create replacement simlinks; e.g. 'ln -s /run /var/run' and 'ln -s /run/lock /var/lock'
