Backend wont start after update

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I don't update my mythtv system all that often because something usually breaks! I had 414 updates pending so went for it and now the backend will not start. There was a crash report which popped up after the system restarted which mentioned something about 0.25.fixes..... failed to install... but didn't get a chance to note the message down properly. The frontend will not connect to the backend and sudo /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend start returns start: job failed to start. Can anyone offer any suggestions as where to start with this? I assume that whatever the failed update 0.25.fixes...etc i (Hardware)
