Maybe "apt-get install libqt-perl" will fix it?

Ah. Run "dpkg-reconfigure debconf". If you are running Debian stable, add the -s option to dpkg-reconfigure. Select Dialog as the interface for configuring packages. Then run apt-get upgrade.

Hehe, btw: If you get the same error when trying to reconfigure debconf, edit the the /etc/debconf.conf file manually and comment out the Frontend line... should work.
