MAAS has a lot of packages and dependencies. The central package, maas, should probably depend on similarly versioned dependencies, but it seems that it's not packaged that way. I suspect this is failing because you're not upgrading all of MAAS, or at least this is an aggravating factor.

I always use sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. Is there anything preventing you from updating all packages in the same way?

You could also try sudo dpkg-reconfigure maas-cluster-controller, but try upgrading everything first if you can.
