Virtualmin install error

Hi All

I have am having trouble installing Virtualmin for a Debain 8 x64 VPS, this is the output from the logs:

Setting up dbus (1.8.20-0+deb8u1) ... A dependency job for dbus.service failed. See 'journalctl -xn' for details. invoke-rc.d: initscript dbus, action "start" failed. dpkg: error processing package dbus (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

The hosting provider says take it up with Virtualmin as the error is with the system trying to start something that already exists and not being able to handle the error gracefully. Can anyone shed any light on this and suggest a fix?

Debian 7 does not have this problem, but would prefer to use v8.

Many thanks Paul
