Fixed - sort of...
I installed synaptic
> sudo apt-get install synaptic
Then did a package update and install in synaptic
> sudo synaptic
then press 'Reload' then 'Mark All Upgrades' then 'Apply'
You will probably have to reboot to complete the install. After
rebooting, my update-manager no longer stated that I had a Partial
Upgrade. Instead, it just shows several packages that are greyed out
and that I can not install and indicates there are no updates to
install. I assume they are held back for some reason.

update-manager does not update due to partial upgrade
Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:
I am running ubuntu 12.04 LTS daily build. I ran the upgrade today and
it asked me to do a partial upgrade. However when I start the partial
upgrade it presents the following message.
Can't guess meta-package
Your system does not contain a ubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop or edubuntu-desktop package and it was not possible to detect which version of Ubuntu you are running.
Please install one of the packages above first using synaptic or apt-get before proceeding.
I tried installing ubuntu-desktop however apt-get says it is already installed.
