I installed defaul video drivers for my AMD Radion HD 7610M and the conflicts was settled. Never buy a laptop with AMD video card, disgusting driver support under linux.

Try running sudo dpkg --configure --pending

/etc/default/grub: nouveau.modeset=0: not found

This line indicates that you have somehow corrupted /etc/default/grub and now it is trying to execute as a command nouveau.modeset= instead of interpreting it as part of the kernel command line.
