This is an easier question: xfce4-terminal 0.8.4 will be part of
xfce4.14 which isn't yet available:


The unstable build 4.13 is available from PPAs or you can build the
developer source tree if you want (you don't) to update but 4.14 is a
while out yet, so I really wouldn't bother. You're fully up to date as is.

What is less clear is where are these error messages coming from? What
is the context - is this from an apt command in a terminal or synaptic
output? It's bit weird that it's alerting you to the presence of
*upstream* source packages at all...
