Since I don't read German, I simply searched for the entire error
message, which came back with search results about not being able to
access a Samba or other network device. First, do you have a network
drive or other computing device, especially one accessed through SMB
or other networking protocol? Second, if you do, does the problem go
away if that device is not connected to your network?
