Seems you are downloading the package librhythmbox-core7_3.0.1-0~13.10~ppa1_i386.deb when you already have librhythmbox-core.so.8.0.0 installed. Probably a PPA issue.

My suggestion is to remove all librhythmbox packages and reinstall your preferred version.

  1. Remove the current librhythmbox installation with sudo dpkg --remove librhythmbox-core
  2. Update your apt cache with sudo apt-get update
  3. Reinstall librhythmbox with sudo apt-get install -f librhythmbox
