I have had some things getting "stuck" lately as well.

First, fix broken packages.
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -f

Then if you still have a conflict with a shared file, like I did, you 
can try;
sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite 
/var/cache/apt/archives/libreoffice-common_1%3a4.3.1~rc2-0ubuntu1~precise1_all.deb

Yes, it was a PPA.  :)
