The issue is on line 122 and 123:
| dpkg: error processing
| trying to overwrite '/usr/share/pyshared/sugar/__init__.py', which is

That's because at some point the PPA included a "sugar-base" package.
The immediate fix is for somebody to reupload python-sugar-0.88 and have
it "Conflict:" and "Replaces:" sugar-base.

sugar-base is not in the PPA, so *new* installs should be okay.

Does `sudo apt-get remove -f sugar-base` resolve your problem?
