Really no one can answer you that questions for you! It all depends on how
you handle things. If you ask for my personal opinion: I would do
everything to avoid a reinstall of a Unix/Linux server system, that is in
production use. Even writing back old backups. Your problem with the dbus
and kernel packages seems solvable for me. If your server works regardless
of the package problems I would take the time to resolve these problems.

I know you will try to ask me, what you can do ;-). When I have the time I
will post you the corresponding "dpkg -i --forc-XYZ ..." command lines
that might do the trick. But it might be faster if you read something
about the package manager tools aptitude, apt-get and dpkg.
