When you get the slip in NCU to backup Internal and/or Card, deselect internal to backup Card only. Also deselect All Packages. If if still fails, you know it's a Soup problem. If not, you can proceed to do a second backup but select only Packages. If it fails, it's confirmed that you have a corrupt Package. Just reinstall them manually.
