Apache intallation issue

I installed apache2 on my Kubuntu system, and then decided to get rid of
it and install apache instead.  Silly me, I installed apache before
uninstalling apache2, which caused issues.  I exected apt-get remove
apache2 and apt-get remove apache, but that left some configuration files.
 I then did dpkg --purge apache and dpkg --purge apache2, which told me
apache and apache2 were completely removed.

Now I'm trying to reinstall apache with apt-get install, and I'm getting
the following post-install configuration error:

Can't open config file /etc/apache/httpd.conf.dpkg-inst.queue.
No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat '/etc/apache/httpd.conf.dpkg-inst.queue': No such file or
dpkg: error processing apache (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Anyone have any idea what I've done wrong here?
