The most probable meaning of that message is that the Maintenance tool found that it installed something, but afterwards did not find uninstall instructions for some of the packages that it installed.
Meaning that you most probably will run into problems the next time an update comes (or some later update), because it will not uninstall the package before installing the new version, resulting in stale files lying around.
