My ubuntu distribution upgrade got corrupted. As per suggestion from ubuntu distribution upgrade got corrupted I ran apt-get install -f to remedy the immediate problem.

Now while running do-release-upgrade -d I get the following error -

That thing is nicely hiding all errors. Try the old fashioned way by changing your sources.list and doing apt-get dist-upgrade.

Dennis thanks for the answer. I am sorry I didnt understand what you meany by 'changing your sources.list'. I tried running apt-get dist-upgrade and got the following error - E: Could not perform immediate configuration on 'passwd'. Please see man 5 apt.conf under APT::Immediate-Configure for details.

That's not the full error you get. Please give all output. –  Dennis Kaarsemaker Mar 27 '13 at 17:32
    
Dennis I have added the complete output, appreciate your help. –  murtaza52 Mar 28 '13 at 1:47
    
ok, this is a tricky one then, even apt doesn't say much. Some interactive debugging is probably better than serverfault comments. Could you use irc, maybe via webchat.freenode.net if you don't have an irc client. I'm Seveas on freenode. –  Dennis Kaarsemaker Mar 28 '13 at 8:04
    
And if you can't join IRC, try this command: apt-get install passwd. That should updgrade only passwd and its dependencies, hopefully not failing or failing more informatively. –  Dennis Kaarsemaker Mar 28 '13 at 8:05
