after taking a look at the preinstall script it seems that it checks for the wrong initscript.
it checks for /etc/init.d/mono-xsp instead of mono-xsp2 so when mono-xsp is installed it tries to execute the /etc/init.d/mono-xsp2 script to stop the service which fails as its not installed.

thats the content of the preinst script extracted via dpkg-deb.
#!/bin/sh -e

DESC="XSP WebServer"

case "$1" in
        if [ -f /etc/init.d/mono-xsp ]; then
            if which invoke-rc.d >/dev/null 2>&1; then
                invoke-rc.d mono-xsp2 stop
                /etc/init.d/mono-xsp2 stop

exit 0

it should check for /etc/init.d/mono-xsp2 initscript instead i think.

I verified that, just change the line where it uses test to check for the existance of the initscript,it installs fine after that.

I filed a bug report in the debian bugtracker for that issue.
Now we just have to wait for debian maintainers to fix that and the changes can be merged back into ubuntu.
Meanwhile you can uninstall mono-xsp and mono-xsp2 should install fine, if you need both change the preinst script on your own and build a new package with the changes and install via dpkg -i.
