Sorry, I wrote my response without reading your post carefully enough. 
I don't have desktop-file-utils and shared-mime-info installed, so I 
didn't see your error messages; I only saw errors like

   /usr/bin/update-mime-database: No such file or directory

I'm not sure why you're getting permission denied errors.  I would still 
bet that it's harmless.  But if it's not, and if it's something about my 
packaging that caused this, maybe someone can tell me how to fix it.
