Weird, well, if your system thinks you have another, lets first get it up to date with
Code:
# updatedb
then see what it says, see if it thinks you have the right version. If not, do the above then do
Code:
# locate dbus
and then manually delete dbus and all its files. After this, updatedb again and you should be back on track. Remember to delete the deb file in (I think...) /var/cache/apt/archives/ - this essentially does the same as a purge.

After that, you should be bang on target- though just as a quick test, see if you can purge and install after the updatedb


EDIT:
Bah! Wrong order!
Code:
# updatedb
# rm -rf /var/cache/apt/archives/*
Then try purge and install, then manually delete should you need to

My solution:

F-this. I am switching over to Fedora. Jaunty has been giving me problems since i installed it. Don't worry. I still use Ubuntu on my laptop.

Thank you for trying James. Any way to thank you or give you some credit?

Nah, we didn't solve the problem. Its a pity though; removing the cached files ought to have done it, but no worries- If one distro doesn't do it for you, keep going until you find the ideal one

I don't know if this will help anyone, but I had the exact same problem.

It was caused by TimeVault. I simply removed the package and the start up script and all was well.
