It looks to me like edubuntu-desktop may be missing from the list of metapkgs:

2012-10-31 12:18:41,938 DEBUG none of the '['ubuntu-desktop', 'kubuntu-desktop', 'xubuntu-desktop', 'ubuntustudio-desktop', 'ichthux-desktop', 'mythbuntu-desktop', 'ubuntu-netbook', 'kubuntu-netbook', 'lubuntu-desktop']' meta-pkgs installed

and from DistUpgrade.cfg in the quantal release upgrader:

[Distro]
# the meta-pkgs we support
MetaPkgs=ubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop, ubuntustudio-desktop, ichthux-desktop, mythbuntu-desktop, ubuntu-netbook, kubuntu-netbook, lubuntu-desktop

Actually edubuntu-desktop depends on ubuntu-desktop so that is not an issue. What version or flavor of Ubuntu do you have installed?

The reporter is running precise and it looks like they may have some PPA versions of unity packages installed which would cause an issue.
