apt-get problem

I have been trying to upgrade for quite sometime and I keep getting this nagging problem. Anyone seen this before? This is on a Sun Ultra2 SMP box. I am not that comfortable with the apt system. I am very interested in Debian Linux though because somone still bothers to port thier OS to Suns. Sun Microsystems supposedly embraces Linux but does not port it to there "own" hardware. I am quite pleased with how my old Sun runs but I am not happy with being a couple revs back. Thanks all
