This really isn't the right mailing list for this; -qa-packages is for
the maintenance of orphaned packages. debian-user would be a better bet.

That suggests a somewhat broken perl to me.

That indicates that /usr/lib/emacsen-common/emacs-package-install
segfaulted, it's a perl script.

Nothing's wrong with your package manager so far.

You might want to check out /usr/bin/perl in more detail. Using perl
5.6.1-7 on unstable, its md5sum is currently
2ee843b4185c78c84315914436b00e3c. If that's OK, then check that your
system doesn't have bad memory using something like memtest86.
