It is important that you show the exact error messages. If you modify it, it makes it difficult for other to search for help for you, and you are doing yourself a disservice.

The rest of the message, if I am correct, says something about running kuzdu from the command line, right?

Have you done that?

Go into single-user mode, and run /usr/sbin/kudzu from the command line.
