In past with problem you had, after installing xfree86-common, apt-get
upgrade ought to be able to proceed as it normally does. Are you
getting any more error messages?

You could try installing some of held packages with "dpkg -i" or
"apt-get install" and see if you get additional diagnostic messages. 

Recently, I have been using aptitude to install and upgrade
packages. If a package get highlighted as broken when I try to
install, I can expand details regarding the package and find out why
it cannot install.
