Default dpkg: error while apt-get upgrade

Hi all,

I was about to do an upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10, I did an update and it
failed. I dropped to the command line and this is what I am getting.

I want to fix this before I do an upgrade to 8.10 since it might cause
problems. Any idea how I fix this ?
