Sorry - submitted too soon.

Two part question:
a) anyone encounter this before / have a workaround or fix?
b) is there a way to find more verbose logs for apt-get?

I can't seem to reproduce that on a fresh 14.04 droplet. Are you using package repository: http://pkg.jenkins-ci.org/debian

You could try running the post installation script directly to see what is happening:

sh /var/lib/dpkg/info/jenkins.postinst configure 1.560
Maybe it's because of this, I'm having the same issue on an older ubuntu version
Dammit: https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-22710

Maybe you have some other process listening to 8080 port. Try to stop it and try again

To get this fixed - install required jdk for jenkins, remove jenkins, remove java (if not needed)
