Do I understand that correctly that you have enabled the Mint and the ZevenOS repositories on Ubuntu?
Well, seems to me that you have broken the system with that. While many distros are based on Ubuntu that doesn't mean that they all have to be compatible with Ubuntu to the whole extent.
Sorting that out will be a mees, I would think, so I recommend to make a fresh install and to backup the whole system next time before making such experiments, so that you easily can go back to a known good state.
