I keep getting a red X icon in my notification area. This started a few weeks ago when doing the normal updating process with Update Manager. I decided now I have to ask this question to figure what is wrong. Here is the error message Update Manager provided in the pop up upon completion

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/python-lazr.restfulclient_0.9.11-1ubuntu1.3_all.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 1
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/update-manager_1%3a0.134.11.2_all.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 1

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/update-manager-kde_1%3a0.134.11.2_all.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 1

And here is a screen shot

UPDATE: Details of the error from terminal

Ok. It's super long. So long I could not paste it in here. Part 1 & Part 2

Something is very broken on your system. It looks like python is Python 3? Am I right? That's going to break everything, don't do that :)

Also, I see lots of warnings about an installed ruby-1.9.1 package with an invalid version number. Don't know where that came from, but I don't trust it :P

Right but what can I do about this? Do you think I am getting hacked? –  max Mar 1 '12 at 13:44
    
No, far more likely you made the change yourself, without realizing what you were doing. –  tumbleweed Mar 4 '12 at 20:06
