problems with 10.04 upgrade to 12.04

I've run into similar hell when upgrading from Lucid to Precise (and
essentially following the instructions and the release notes). My
issues are not dissimilar to the 'lxde' ones reported here, although
more serious.

Bottom line is that the upgrade botched up, 3.2.0 cannot be booted
fully ('mountall' fails) to a virtual console, and I can operate the
new Precise only from a chroot environment. For more info on this
particular case see my xubuntu-users post [1].

Following your suggestions (and several others in this thread) here is
the output that I get:
cat /var/log/dist-upgrade/ :
dpkg --configure -a :
apt-get -fy install :
apt-get dist-upgrade :
dpkg --get-selections :

Any ideas on how to deal with these errors? Regards
