If you are getting this regularly "every other day" it could be lack of resources during a backup, or index unavailability during a re-index job.  Your DBA should check for performance issues during these processes and ensure that the indexes are available during re-indexing.

And what is this job actually doing? It appears to be some DTS/SSIS package.
