I don't see how the above output could be much more clear. It wants to
upgrade the installed group of packages named "Resilient Storage" and
the included packages have new dependencies.

 * realise you don't want the group and remove it
 * live with its new dependencies even though you wont use all of them
   (this is of course the situation more many other packages on your
   machine already)
 * hold off on the update
