As you quote the message out of context, the question can not be answered. Note, there are a number of reasons why you can this message.
When you never backed up any archivelogs you will get this message on the 'backup validate' command.
When backup optimization is on, any archivelog will be backed up only once, and subsequent backups can result in this message.

BTW who is 'we'? Why is everyone using 'we' , when it they mean 'I'. In West-European languages using 'We' instead of 'I' is known as the 'Majestic Plural' : the plural kings are using. You are not a king, are you?
