An unhandlable error occured
There seems to be a programming error in aptdaemon, the software that allows you to install/remove software and to perform other package management related tasks. Please report this error at http://launchpad.net/aptdaemon/+filebug and retry.

Try using aptitude or apt-get instead from a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T). Aptdaemon is a front-end to these systems, AFAIK, so you are less likely to have problems.

aptitude search ttf-mscorefonts-installer
sudo aptitude install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Can you help with this problem?
