your apt update wasn't 100% successful, apt is trying to retrieve old lib;
just an example: totem-common is not at v.3.0.1-8 but 3.4.2-1 and the same should apply to all the others.

Thanks for getting back to me. So what do I need to do? Can I execute the upgrade safely?

no problem :D
first you have to make sure that

Code: Select all

apt update
finishes without any error and then the same for

Code: Select all

apt dist-upgrade


if you see errors in any of those steps wait for a quieter period to update.
