I had exactly that experience when installing my Brother DCP135c under 
11.10.  The damaged installation prevented updates and installation of 
new packages.  The only way out I found was to re-install Ubuntu from 
scratch.  After that, I used the Software Centre instead of dpkg to 
install the printer and scanner drivers, and it worked OK.  I wrote a 
script that does all the tweaks - they sound very similar to the ones 
you have to do.

Regards,        Barry.
