On Fedora this bug has occured too. It is caused by use of python3 where Exception class error message can not be accesed by indexing. The patch i'm attaching fixes it.

The attachment "Use msg variable instead of [0] to acces error message" seems to be a patch. If it isn't, please remove the "patch" flag from the attachment, remove the "patch" tag, and if you are a member of the ~ubuntu-reviewers, unsubscribe the team.
