I am trying to install mailscanner using apt-get install mailscanner and I got the following error

Setting up spamassassin (3.3.1-1) ...
Starting SpamAssassin Mail Filter Daemon: child process [21344] exited or timed out without signaling production of a PID file: exit 255 at /usr/sbin/spamd line 2588.

and when I tried to install spamassassin I got the following error :
