I had the same problem, but i noticed it only after restoring backup
and installing xterm; was the same for you?

Anyway, i fixed this reverting to swapping /var/lib/dpkg/status with
/var/lib/dpkg/status-old I found happily. Of course you have to be
root for doing this. May be there is a simpler way for recovering.
