This question already has an answer here:
Background Mage 18.104.22.168. Fully-patched except USPS patches (see note below). No manual edits have been made to install files failing patch.
Problem Summary 2 Installs: Fails with message ERROR: Patch can't be applied/reverted successfully.
Problem Detail 2 specific failures in the report:
Both installs: "patching file app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/controllers/DashboardController.php Hunk #1 FAILED at 91."
One install: "patching file app/design/frontend/base/default/template/persistent/customer/form/login.phtml Hunk #1 FAILED at 38."
- Searched through all 1.x patches for those two files. Error 1 (DashboardController.php) is changed in one other patch: SUPEE-1533, which is applied to both installs. Error 2 file (customer/form/login.phtml) isn't found in any patches)
- Specifically looked at the un-applied USPS patches; neither of the files that won't patch are touched by those patches
