dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of winbind:
 winbind depends on samba-common (= 2:3.2.0-4ubuntu2); however:
  Version of samba-common on system is 2:3.2.0-4ubuntu3.
dpkg: error processing winbind (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:

Looks to the untrained eye that samba-common 4ubuntu3 was installed before the winbind was ready for installation.
Expected that the prereq 4ubuntu2 "or newer" would have been more appropriate and that the installation routine would allow continuing even if prereq was newer, if not regress and reupdate the samba.

Currently, to the user,  winbind remains on the update list
uninstallable through every iteration of new update installs. Update
tries to but fails on unspecified "dependency problem".
