Thanks for the bug report!

JFTR: The line in the subject is not the error message but only the report _that_ something has failed. The actual error message is in DpkgTerminalLog.txt and the cause is this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/wicd/daemon/wicd-daemon.py", line 1954, in <module>
    main(sys.argv)
  File "/usr/share/wicd/daemon/wicd-daemon.py", line 1798, in main
    os.chmod(backup_location, 0644)
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/var/lib/wicd/resolv.conf.orig'
