Ubuntu 13.10 does not even work properly when you use a chroot to attempt to fix it.

The Ubuntu 13.10 distribution is buggy beyond belief. I was trying to use a chroot to attempt to fix my Ubuntu 13.10 and I am having countless problems with the whole process. The chroot works very well with the Gentoo Linux distribution; why is 13.10 Ubuntu so bad? They hype this distribution as the next best thing; but compared to Chrunchbang, Fedora and Mint it is horrible. I had problems reading from the Australian Ubuntu repositories; you cannot always avoid network problems I guess; but the other issues really are annoying me. I am using Fedora 19 and that is giving me no problems in comparison. I cannot believe I was able to install Xmms to listen to music. That is very cool. That old program still has some life left in it. But below is the error that I get after chrooting into Ubuntu 13.10 from Fedora 19 and running apt-get update && apt-get upgrade. But I am not sure how to fix this.
