I think this output belongs to the ROOT BRIDGE.

Check which vlans are in the blocking state by:

#show spanning-tree summary

May be some on your Vlans are in " *PVID_Inc " check by giving the following commands:

#sh spanning-tree vlan 1 (check those vlans which are in blocking state)


#sh spanning-tree inconsistentports

Can you post with the outputs?
