A symlink is a shortcut to another file. On your machine rmic.1.gz 
points to another filename and that file doesn't exist. Either the 
package that installed the symlinks is broken, or you uninstalled 2 
packages which didn't properly clean up their links.

To fix it, run 'ls -al /usr/share/man/man1/' and see where the links 
point to, then run locate on those file names to see where the 
originals really are. Then delete or amend the links as appropriate
