This time it looks like a useful error message to me - with your 
previous post I had no idea where to look.

apt-file search
libpam-winbind: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/security/

So it seems like you are missing the "libpam-winbind" package. If 
installing that package fixes the problem, you might file a bug report 
for the partition manager and / or kuser about a missing dependency.
