You will until you fix the following issue...

^^^ this I believe is the issue. You have a reference to a debian repository
on an Ubuntu system. This cannot be good.
Remove is like this:-
Applications --> Accessories --> terminal
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
comment out (or remove) the lines referencing "debian.org" by either
deleting them completely or putting a "#" character at the start of those
Then save the file, exit the editor and run the following command again:-
sudo apt-get update
Then try to do the update via the graphical tool.
A word of warning, it's possible that packages have in the past come into
your system from that debian repository. It is _possible_ this may cause
conflicts with other installed, or yet to be installed, ubuntu packages.
Lets see what happens after we do the above though eh before we panic :)
