Googling for brasero libunity suggests you are not alone in this.  See
[1] and [2] and possibly others.

Suggestions there are to do (after my previous suggestions I think)
sudo ln /usr/lib/libunity.so.9 /usr/lib/libunity.so.6
or/and
sudo apt-get --reinstall libunity6
but I cannot vouch for these.

Is anyone more knowledgeable reading?
