Were it not for the above tip from Mr. Ellis, I'd still be struggling with this mess of a a package.
Kudos to him!
Meanwhile, I can also confirm I had the same problem with this package as well.
This also clearly points out one of the few deficiencies with APT. It should just "move on" when it encounters a problem package rather than coming to a screeching halt. This is especially true when one is trying to install important updates, among other packages at once, (e.g. apt-get upgrade, apt-get dist-upgrade, apt-get install packageA, packageB, messed-up-packageC...).
