The problem is that the kernel you want to install requires a newer
version of initramfs-tools than the one you currently have installed,
but apt-get cannot upgrade to a newer version of initramfs-tools.

Since you are trying to install a 3.14 kernel from backports, I assume
that you are running wheezy.  You need to install the initramfs-tools
package from wheezy-backports too, version 0.115~bpo70+1, I think.
