packages "not configured" after recent upgrade to Breezy


I recently upgraded to breezy, and for the most part, things went well.

However, whenever I try to upgrade, I get the following message ( I have also tried the -f option to no avail )

Code:
jesse@jesse:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
Password:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Setting up postfix (2.2.4-1ubuntu2) ...

Postfix configuration was untouched.  If you need to make changes, edit
/etc/postfix/main.cf (and others) as needed.  To view Postfix configuration
values, see postconf(1).

After modifying main.cf, be sure to run '/etc/init.d/postfix reload'.

I have an identical problem except that the package "lsb-desktop" is also listed as causing problems. Does anybody know how to fix this? It says that the 8 packages need configuration; where/how do I do this?

Nice. I seem to have found how to fix this! In my case, apt-get was failing because postfix was not starting. After take a look at the syslog and looking up the postfix error message, I found that postfix was not starting because no network interfaces were up. So I
Code:
sudo ifconfig lo up
, restarted apt-get, and everything worked!
