I tried to a upgrade this morning and encountered errors. Ran apt-get -f install and got this error below. I don't recall installing any quantal packages.

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of linux-image-generic-lts-quantal:
linux-image-generic-lts-quantal depends on linux-image-3.5.0-39-generic; however:
Package linux-image-3.5.0-39-generic is not installed.
dpkg: error processing linux-image-generic-lts-quantal (--configure):

No apport report written because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure.

I purged the quantal packages (linux-image-generic-lts-quantal, linux-generic-lts-quantal) and ran apt-get update then upgrade. All is well.
