Can't answer this - sorry - but I had exactly the same problem.  
Fortunately, it occurred on Oneiric testing, so I just re-installed.  If 
I don't use dpkg to install the packages, I can get a good install with 
no problem.  I'm now using the Ubuntu software centre to install all 
four packages needed for my DCP 135C and getting no problem - but this 
doesn't help your issue.  Sorry.

Regards,        Barry.
