Hi All,

But i received the error, that cannot running successful on startup, any idea for this error?

Following is my /etc/anacrontab:
david@raspberrypi ~ $ cat /etc/anacrontab
# /etc/anacrontab: configuration file for anacron

# See anacron(8) and anacrontab(5) for details.

SHELL=/bin/sh
PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
HOME=/root
LOGNAME=root

# These replace cron's entries
1 5 cron.daily run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily
7 10 cron.weekly run-parts --report /etc/cron.weekly
1 5 backup run-parts bash /home/david/scripts/autoRun/backup/backup.sh
1 5 backupMRB run-parts bash /home/david/scripts/autoRun/backup/backupMBR.sh
1 5 upgrade run-parts sudo apt-get updrade
1 5 update run-parts sudo apt-get -y update
@monthly 15 cron.monthly run-parts --report /etc/cron.monthly


It is anacrontab setting wrong?

Ok, i have check the document of the crontab
so , the run-parts is mean run the dir contained file , but i provided file path
may be /etc/anacrontab should changed to following.
# /etc/anacrontab: configuration file for anacron

# See anacron(8) and anacrontab(5) for details.

SHELL=/bin/sh
PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
HOME=/root
LOGNAME=root

# These replace cron's entries
1 5 cron.daily run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily
7 10 cron.weekly run-parts --report /etc/cron.weekly
1 5 backup /bin/bash /home/david/scripts/autoRun/backup/backup.sh
1 5 backupMBR /bin/bash /home/david/scripts/autoRun/backup/backupMBR.sh
1 5 upgrade sudo apt-get updrade
1 5 update sudo apt-get -y update
@monthly 15 cron.monthly run-parts --report /etc/cron.monthly

I think you need to fix this error at least
Code:
... Can't find sendmail at /usr/sbin/sendmail, not mailing output
