This is on non-SUDO Ubuntu 12.04, updated, all checkboxes checked except Thunderbird/Index and System/Custom, Free Disk Space and Memory.

It does not seem to be a big deal but saw this twice today. Is there a config file I can post or a file to provide any other system info for debugging?

To clean APT you must run as root or using sudo. If you try to clean APT as non-root (or without sudo) it is normal to see these errors.
