In your tex file, there is a line with the following command: \usepackage{lastpage}. When LaTeX finds it, it tries to read the file lastpage.sty, or, in other words, LaTeX tries to load the lastpage package. But, in your case, LaTeX does not find it. I figure out that you have done a basic TeX Live instalation. Use your favourite package manager (adept, apt-get...) to install texlive-latex-extra. The LaTeX package lastpage is there.
