From your logfiles it looks like a problem with libqt4-xmlpatterns
Please have a look here (if you have not yet done so): http://askubuntu.com/a/167933/83946
That question is about the same software package.

Basically, do the following in a terminal:

apt-get download libqt4-xmlpatterns:i386
apt-get download libqt4-xmlpatterns:amd64
sudo dpkg -i libqt4-xmlpatterns*.deb
sudo dpkg --configure -a

in case dpkg can't install the packet, try passing --force-depend option –  Dmitry Vyal Nov 1 '13 at 11:03
