Got this bug report today after checking updates on Precise 32 bit.

Title differs a bit cause of different language server:

Today I am getting many error messages about Ubuntu internal error and System program problem detected

I have documented the errors in a text file attached.

I'm on fully updated 14.04 LTS and I get that error almost everytime when I refresh repos in Synaptic.
