Following up a thread I found on this topic. Have a partial upgrade to 12.04 completed. When I attempt to upgrade, it failes. I see the following when trying the fixes presented:
root at TuckVPS:/# apt-get install -o APT::Immediate-Configure=false -f
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

Correcting dependencies... failed.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
python: Depends: python-minimal (= 2.6.5-0ubuntu1) but 2.7.3-0ubuntu2 is installed
python2.7-minimal: Depends: libssl1.0.0 (>= 1.0.0) but it is not installed
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
E: Unable to correct dependencies
My Current Version of Python is: 2.6.5-0ubuntu1
root at TuckVPS:/var/cache/apt/archives# dpkg -l python
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name Version Description
ii python 2.6.5-0ubuntu1 An interactive high-level object-oriented language (default version)
I have tried a number of things with apt-get, aptitude, and dpkg to force the upgrade to Python2.7-minimal and nothing has worked. Found https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/python-defaults/+bug/990740 and tried many of the suggestions there. I have tried re-installing 2.6 and 2.5. The next thing I can think to do is manually remove the 2.7.3-0ubuntu2. Aptitude offers some remedies yet never is able to complete them.
Thanks for any insight or help in advance.
