That's /usr/lib/apt/scripts/upgradevirt.lua running.  The problem is
that you don't have a normal kernel setup on that "system".  The
following should get rid of that message:

  perl -pi -e 's/(Upgrade-Virtual )"true"/$1"false"/' \

The fedora.us apt package includes a lot of magic that works
wonderfully on the vast majority of systems, but it's not all 100%
