While upgrading elementary os, I get following error from appstream:

dpkg: error: version '/usr/share/app-info/yaml /usr/share/app-info/icons' has bad syntax: version string has embedded spaces

Everything looks normal, but is this something that I can fix easily? Thanks,

Full error is as belows:
