Bug Description

I tried to upgrade my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS on my Lenovo W500 4062-J2G notebook, but upgrade process failed few minutes before end, screen was blinking between GUI and text mode, after one hour I decided to turn off the system. After restart system did not boot properly, only if I used recovery mode. Then I tried to run uograde again, but without success. The only thing which worked was activation of graphics card driver. Then reboot and finally I was able to log on. But almost every app. I run has problem with package as you can see in summary. Maybe it is not a bug, but system started bug report process, so I decided to send it anyway.

I think the xkeyboard-config error is just a side-effect of the upgrade failure. Probably if you complete the upgrade and reconfigure the package, it should work properly then.
