Do you by chance have the 'cinder-common' or 'cinder-backup' packages installed already? It looks like whatever repository you're pulling from has mismatched versions of cinder-common and cinder-backup.

This can occur if you have one package installed that's out-of-date, or if you've got one package from the Unstable repo and one from Stable... or something similar.

I would suggest uninstalling one or both, running an 'apt-get update', and then attempting to install both packages again.

I have the default Ubuntu 14.04 repos plus ceph and openstack:

# cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
deb trusty main
deb trusty-updates/juno main

My mistake, somehow the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudarchive-juno.list file got removed on this node.
