Nothing. It's not an error, it's not even a warning, it's just a notification. As the program said, fort77 is already installed and the newest version, you're done.

If you'd like to get rid of the "these packages are no longer required" notification, you can do as it says and run "apt-get autoremove". They have nothing to do with Fortran, they're just notifications from the package manager letting you know you have a couple of unused packages currently installed.
