That's Four security updates, four blocked updates, and four _other_
updates. "blocked" updates are generally blocked because of dependency
errors. "Why" could be any one of a number of things - how exactly did you
upgrade to 9.04? There is an apt command that will tell you _why_ updates
are blocked, but I've never had to resort to it myself. "sudo aptitude why
PACKAGE-NAME" should help.
