[xubuntu-users] Problem After App Upgrade

I simply updated the apps as I usually do by running sudo apt-get update &  
sudo apt-get upgrade. Everything seemed to update/upgrade OK  but then  
there was this negative icon on my desktop (the No Enter sign) and  this  
message came up when I pressed it.

I shut down my machine, started it up again, tried to fix it by going to  
Synaptic but got same message.

Here is the latest output when I run sudo apt-get update:
