 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.
