postgres ERROR: null value in column ""xxxxx"" violates not-null constraint

I found the following message within syslog.

< message >
postgres ERROR:  null value in column ""xxxxx"" violates not-null constraint

Note: ""xxxxx"" is masked.

I am not developer but manage server.
Would you please tell me the meaning and the solution?

You have allready asked this and I have allready responsed ... maybe you should read the posts to your previous questions.

simply, a null value has been inserted in a column that forbids null value inserts.
You may have an error in some inserts.
You can manually modify it by issuing an update in the db

UPDATE tablename SET columnname = yournewvalue WHERE conditionblablabla
