Bug Description

Hi there,

nova-common 2012.2~f1~20120503.13935-0ubuntu1 fails to upgrade (in this case from 2012.1-0ubuntu2.1).

I added set -x to the top of the postinst so we can see what's going on:

laney@raleigh> sudo dpkg --configure --pending ~
Setting up nova-common (2012.2~f2~20120531.14249-0ubuntu2) ...
+ [ configure = configure ]
+ getent group nova
+ getent passwd nova
+ id -gn nova
+ [ nova = nogroup ]
+ [ -z 2012.1-0ubuntu2.1 ]
+ dpkg --compare-versions 2012.1-0ubuntu2.1 lt 2011.3-0ubuntu4
+ dpkg --compare-versions 2012.1-0ubuntu2.1 lt 2012.2~f1~20120503.13935-0ubuntu1
+ cp /etc/nova/nova.conf /etc/nova/nova.conf.upgrade
+ nova-manage config convert --infile=/etc/nova/nova.conf --outfile=/etc/nova/nova.conf

Unfortunately the conversion tool doesn't mention which line it's having problems on.
