firstly i installed nova-compute in my system and did few mistakes like mismatching the id's of endpoint with keystone.

then i purged the entire nova file using command apt-get autoremove --y --purge nova-api nova-cert nova-consoleauth nova-scheduler nova-conductor ......

then i wanted to reinstall the whole nova process then i started downloading using command

apt-get install nova-api nova-cert nova-consoleauth nova-scheduler nova-conductor...

and its just the basic download process so no log file also. the following output comes in terminal.

yes, Removing package also remove the log file. If you want those log files , then backup / copy the entire folder to the other location.

Pradeep you have to run the apt-get command with --configure flag. The nova-common and nova-api packages in your machine are not configured to get the dependencies. Please run $ sudo apt-get install nova-api nova-common --configure.

PS: Please copy the text in the terminal and post it here as code text, it is easier to read, less data to download for us and you can post more text than what your screen can display at once :).
