Why Do I Keep Getting This Message

Your packages are out of date.

In order to get the necessary updates and go online, you will be returned to the sign in screen.

Do you wish to continue?

If I say yes it does not go to the sign in screen. It restarts and looks for updates like it always does but does not find any. And continues to start up. At some point later I will get that message again. This has been going on for about a week now. Does anyone have any ideas about how to cure it?
