Ubuntu – Getting “System program problem detected” pops up regularly after upgrade


This started to happen immediately after I had rebooted the first time after doing a system upgrade. It first starts with a dialogue that says "System program problem detected". Then when I try to hit 'report problem' not much happens. I am led through a dialogue that always ends up the problem cannot be solved.

I am aware this is not a lot of information, however I'm not sure which information I need to publish and how should I obtain it to debug this problem.

Here's a screenshot!

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and type:

sudo rm /var/crash/*

Then hit Enter.

This will remove any old crashes, that might still be reported (in error). After a reboot/re-starting, any further pop-ups still need to be investigated.
