Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

And trying to reinstall the basic Ubuntu gvfs-backends:
$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall gvfs-backends

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  gvfs-backends: Depends: gvfs (= 1.4.1-0ubuntu1) but
1.5.1-0ubuntu1~ppa2 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

What a mess. Now I have to go through each package the ppa installed &
reinstall the working standard package.
