To me it looks as if there was some movement going on...perhaps ypu started moving before you finished taking the photo... really I have no idea. Maybe one of the pros here can tell...

Looks like the cam used aslow shutter speed to let more light in. Must've been in a low light scene. You did nothing wrong per se...It's just that your subjector you moved as the shutter was closing which in turn gave you the blur.

It had to have been the camera moving, look at all the blur patterns, they're all going top right to bottom left, even the people that would be walking away from the camera. It's obviously a low light setting, find something to brace the camera better... Or use the flash or something. Just make sure the camera doesn't move (as much as humanly possible) til after the camera is completely done taking the shot.

It is camera shake. at the same time subject (people) has also moved so there is motion blurr too. In low-light shooting you need to hold camera very steady as the shutter speeds will be about 1/10 to 1/2 secs which is very long time to hold camera steady and you really need to practice it. If you are shooting candid scene such as this you can not have people freezed unless they want to. So you have to increase ISO to 200 or 400 on your camera and then shoot with faster shutter speeds like 1/120 or 1/250.

All these things needs lots of self experimenting. Keep track on the picture info after each picture on your camera and learn that which setting gave which type of shots.
