    Did you update Ubuntu recently? Python errors are common when upgrading from 16.04 to 18.04, for example. Try manually installing with "sudo apt install python-virtualenv" to see if you can resolve the dependency manually.

    ok thanks for your help guys ,,,, one more thing
    once i have done this

    Add a check function to crontab to make sure it checks every minute to ensure your masternode is still running:

    crontab -e

    Choose nano as your editor and enter the following line at the end of the file, after the line for sentinel:

    * * * * * pidof dashd || ~/.dashcore/dashd

    is that ALL i need to do to keep dashd running in all eventualities OR do i still need to use the restart script that starts dashd if for some reason the server restarts or dashd simply stops ?
