Ok, that looks like the wrong path to take.  Clearly listing all the
packages it fails to install by hand is not going to work.

I'm now looking at the bug comments trying to find the error from

  apt-get install -o APT::Immediate-Configure=false -f

and I don't see it.  Did you try this command?  Can you?
