The extra configure lines where not necessary.

Reverted and updated files have been uploaded to the previously
mentioned ftp.

Ah, good. Then you will be glad to know that the following lines can
be safely removed:

dpkg --configure libdb3               <--- Yep, that one too.
dpkg --configure libncurses5
dpkg --configure libncursesw5
dpkg --configure libpam-runtime
dpkg --configure libpam0g

Btw, how about adding 2>/dev/null to the configure line of dpkg?

dpkg --force-depends --configure dpkg 2>/dev/null

It always complains about depending on both dselect and hurd and
I don't think we (or the installer) need to care about that since
those dependencies are satisfied a few steps down the line.
