You are using third party packages from medibuntu.  Most of your system
is not broken, only those few upgrades like skype, adobe reader, google
earth, and other multimedia codecs. They are probably installed but
you are not getting new versions when they become available.
Get a key with which they sign their packages and trust it,
in a terminal type (all on one line):

wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

Read more on the medibuntu site. Note much of it is non-free software.
