When I update, after some file downloads it shows the below errors. What should I do now?

This is to be expected when booting from USB, and as long as you are connected to the internet, these lines can be safely ignored, as packages can be downloaded from the internet. Normally you can install a small handful of packages directly from the LiveCD, such as WiFi drivers, but unfortunately this feature does not work with LiveUSBs.

If need be, these packages can be installed using dpkg using the .deb files found in the subfolders of the "pool" folder on the USB drive (for example, installing the bcmwl-kernel-source package to make certain WiFi chips work).
