Where are the icons

When I today made 'sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' I got error message:

Processing triggers for hicolor-icon-theme (0.13-1)
(gtk-update-icon-cache-3.0:25038): GdkPixbuf-WARNING **: Cannot open pixbuf loader module file '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache': No such file or directory
This likely means that your installation is broken.
Try running the command
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache
to make things work again for the time being.

Confused ...

1) The file '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache' exist ...
ls -la /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Oct 1 10:57 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache

2) When I ran 'gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache' it complained ...
# gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache
The program 'gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
apt-get install libgtk2.0-bin
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders: command not found

3) libgtk2.0-bin was already installed ...
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-bin

libgtk2.0-bin is already the newest version.

After reboot the icons in panel were blank with a red cross.
What has happend ?
