The following part definition lists the versions picked:

Any suggestions to fix it ? Thanks.

You can safely ignore errors on .po files.

What is the second error?

Sorry, I means that i got two line errors.

I had edited my question.

Got it, thanks.

To elaborate on Kim's answer: the .po files are message translation source files. If the compile is failing for a package you need and a language you need, that's a problem because you wouldn't get those particular message translations. But it would not affect the rest of the build.

In these cases, the translation failures are for test files. No problem!
