I recently upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04 LTS, however due to time restrictions, I had to skip the step where outdated packages are removed. Is there a way for me to easily do this after the whole upgrade process has been completed?

I don't know whether this will do it but you could try, in a terminal:

sudo apt-get autoremove

It should not do any harm.
