BackupPC broken after upgrade

If you get this error after you installed the latest update:

Error: Unable to connect to BackupPC server

This CGI script (/BackupPC) is unable to connect to the BackupPC server on server port -1.
The error was: unix connect: No such file or directory.
Perhaps the BackupPC server is not running or there is a configuration error. Please report this to your Sys Admin.

chown backuppc:backuppc /var/run/BackupPC

systemctl restart backuppc
