Attempting to complete the network config via gnome.   Clicking on 'Apply' after

Very - happens on all four of my servers, no matter the network config change

Steps to Reproduce:

Here window to System/Network Configuration
2.  Change the hosts, DNS, etc. 
3.  Click on Apply.
Actual results:

The following exception error and no changes applied -
