It sounds like you are trying to install the Mavericks OS but get this error message saying the disk cannot be used to startup the computer. I found this article for while researching what might be happening here named:
OS X Lion: Installer reports "This disk cannot be used to start up your computer"
If that does not resolve the issue I would next try a safeboot, then try the update again:
Mac OS X: What is Safe Boot, Safe Mode?
Safe Mode is the state into which you can start up your Mac by performing a Safe Boot. To perform a Safe Boot, press and hold the Shift key immediately after your Mac starts up. Continue holding down the Shift key until a gray Apple logo appears on the screen.
Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.

Thank you Sterling. Tried both of those without success. Created a boot image with SuperDuper and did a successful clean install. I'm still reinstalling apps. Dismayed to find that PGP and Onyx are not yet compatible with 10.9
