Hi Dalma,
the log suggests that this is failing for some time already.
I saw at least two consequtive updates failing the same way in the log.

But in your log is also:
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test faile

That suggests a broken config which in turn will let the upgrade fail that restarts the service.
Please fix the configuration so the service restarts correctly - afterwards an upgrade will work.

Thank you for your report.

This looks like a local configuration problem, rather than a bug in Ubuntu.

You can find pointers to get help for this sort of problem here: http://www.ubuntu.com/support/community

Since we use this bug tracker to track bugs in Ubuntu, rather than configuration problems, I'm marking this bug as Invalid. This helps us to focus on fixing bugs in Ubuntu.

If you believe that this is really a bug, then you may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem, explain why you believe this is a bug in Ubuntu rather than a problem specific to your system, and then change the bug status back to New.
