[xubuntu-users] Receiving error message on updates

I have been receiving this error message for about 2 weeks. It says:
The following packages requested additional data downloads after package 
installation, but the data could not be downloaded or could not be 
processed.     ttf-mscorefonts-installer

The data appears to be Microsoft brand fonds.  I use Linux (Xubuntu 
16.04).  I run Libra-office for a program that might use these fonts.  I 
do not use MS brand fonts, although my spreadsheets come up with Arial, 
which I must change to FreeSans.

When I "run this action now", it opens a terminal, asks for my root 
password and appears to try to download files with a .exe file type.
