Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and help to improve Ubuntu.

The error in the log is:

Configurando nfs-common (1:1.2.0-2ubuntu8) ...
statd start/running, process 15489
gssd stop/pre-start, process 15517
start: Job is already running: idmapd
invoke-rc.d: initscript idmapd, action "restart" failed.
dpkg: error al procesar nfs-common (--configure):
 el subproceso script post-installation instalado devolvió el código de salida de error 1

Since idmapd is an upstart job, the init script that invoke-rc.d calls is a symlink to /lib/init/upstart-job. This emulation script appears to not return the correct value for 'start' when the job is already running: as a SysV compat script, it needs to follow the policy for SysV scripts. Reassigning to the upstart package.

To work around this problem on your own system, you can run 'sudo stop idmapd; sudo stop gssd; sudo stop statd; sudo dpkg --configure -a'.
