It looks like the upgrade was successful. Of course that doesn't explain 
the error message, but at least the package database seems to be OK.

I'm not sure, but it could be that the system has marked the gacutil.exe 
crash and now wants to report it. You could have a look at the directory 
/var/crash/ and if there is a file like 
"_usr_lib_mono_4.5_gacutil.exe.0.crash" you could remove it (as root). 
That should prevent further attempts to report the crash.
