What version of Ubuntu are you using?

See if the following commands offer any help:

sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

If you still get the same error then:

gksudo nautilus
Navigate to folder /var/cache/apt/archives and locate the file 'linux-firmware_1.79.9_all.deb'. Delete it.
Then repeat the above commands.
