This is a bug, where e2fsprogs accidentally had a pre-depends set on itself,
which doesn't make sense, and means the package cannot be installed
properly.  You might be able to get it to work by using the --force-depends
option with dpkg.  I went to try this out myself, but due to a problem I'm
currently having with my system, it actually successfully installed without
me needing to force it......  :-(
