The thing is /usr/local/man is now a system file, not a directory, appareantly. However, deleting this file was one step to fix it.
I had to run su first, then export PATH=$PATH:/sbin:/usr/sbin and then it worked.

I reinstalled the SUA SDK and the SuToRoot option is described to be necessary for UAC, else root can't be impersonated.
I guess my problem was due to this, I had to execute the shell as administrator per rightclick and then run su to be the real root.
Quite confusing, but I guess this is the only way to get it to work.
I've experienced something else now (after the install succeeded, apt-get update and upgrade -f -V both don't do anything now as supposed),
some packages simply deny the install. I experienced this with x11-common.
It gave me really weird errors (I deleted the logs now, but it was around this way)
-t is not found
