wpa_supplicant is very upset. It is telling you to purge Wickd and add
the following lines to /etc/network/interfaces:

iface wlan0 inet dhcp
	wpa-ssid MyCorrectESSID
	wpa-psk	 "ascii in double quotes/hex without"

Then 'ifup -v wlan0' followed by 'iwconfig' and 'ifconfig' to see what
is going  on.

Knowing what your wireless adaptor is ('lspci' or 'lsusb') might help.
