Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service acpid restart

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the stop(8) and then start(8) utilities,
e.g. stop acpid ; start acpid. The restart(8) utility is also available.

This look like it is caused by an unpropperly installed or buggy kernel module for your mobile internet stick.
You could contact their support oto get assistance or remove the driver completely and use Ubuntus onboad support. On most devices that works pretty well.

Can you help with this problem?
