That file can't be sourced from bash. It needs to be executed in a script.
Please do the following:

apt-get --purge remove apache
rm -rf /etc/apache

vi /usr/share/apache/postinst.common and at the bottom:

do_all() {
    if [ "$#" -ne 1 ]; then
        echo "Wrong number of arguments to do_all"

    set -x

add the set -x

apt-get install apache

and save all the logs in a file and send it to 252678@bugs.debian.org


<user> fajita: step one
<fajita> Whatever the problem, step one is always to look in the error log.
<user> fajita: step two
<fajita> When in danger or in doubt, step two is to scream and shout.
