All your subsequent problems are linked to this one :

Quote:

I would recommend getting rid of the buggy post-installation script and trying again. To do so identify the script with :

ls /var/lib/dpkg/info | grep python-kaa-base

this is going to return a list of post/pre install/rm for the package, cd to /var/lib/dpkg/info and rm or mv the relevant one (python-kaa-base.postinst probably) and try again.

To double check everything is in order do a dpkg -C after that. (the rm/mv and dpkg commands need root privileges, be careful while using rm as root !)

dpkg might need the file so also try adding "exit 0" after the "set -e" line.
