When I tried to upgrade my current Ubuntu system (13.04) to latest one (13.10) the upgrade aborted with these errors.

For time being I did this :

sudo apt-get purge tomboy unity friends account-plugin-facebook

And now it's installing the upgrades!

Ok! This f**ked up my system. Now after reboot I am not able to install unity due to unity-scope-tomboy 403 error. I managed to install e17 and currently using it instead of unity. –  rootkea Oct 17 '13 at 22:01
@all : Please don't follow the above command. My system also got f**ked up :(. I managed to upgrade the system from tty though. –  nitish712 Dec 26 '13 at 8:24
