I had precisely the same problem. What I did was do a
dpkg --extract tetex-base
Then, I entered the directory /etc/texmf, and renamed all the files
there from '*.dpkg-new' removing the '.dpkg-new' part. Then, I
configured the package and installed rest of tetex.
Tetex-base seems to remove these files under configuration, instead
of installing them. Which causes the rest of tetex to break.
Hope tht helps.
