I encountered this same problem using Ubuntu 12.04 after first adding the icehouse cloud archive repository, installing nova-common, purging all the nova components, removing the icehouse repo, adding the havana cloud archive repository, and then reattempting to install nova-common.

At least in my case, it appears that purge is not properly rolling back.

Edit:

Immediately after posting this, I purged nova-common again, and then I did the following:

userdel -r nova

which removed the nova user and it's home directory (/var/lib/nova). Then, the reinstallation process worked.
