Ubuntu doesn't ship uwsgi. What source did you add to get the package? If you followed instructions on a web page, link to it. Post the relevant lines in /etc/apt/sources.list or in a file under /etc/apt/sources.list.d. – Gilles Apr 16 '11 at 18:20

I think you are using the uwsgi launchpad repo.

It is not obvious, but you shouldn't be touching the uwsgi package, but use the uwsgi-python package instead.

Explanation is given here, they are transferring from uwsgi to the name uwgsi-python.
