It is very difficult to see just one line of a logfile and guess what
the problem could be. You haven't mentioned what VPN software, what
P1/P2 proposals, whether the boxes are behind NAT gateways etc. and
haven't pasted any detailed logs or configuration information.

Having said that, from the given information, my best guess could be:

ICMP Type 3 is "Destination Unreachable". It looks to me that your two
VPN end points cannot talk to each other on port 500/udp. Check your
firewall rules and see if that is indeed the case, and fix the problem
if yes.
