Seems debconf is to "blame" for this:

I uninstalled debconf (and a couple of packages depending on it, Real
Player was one). I then installed console-tools again without debconf
and the install went fine. Then I resinstalled debconf and the pakcages
I need that I want that need debconf. Voila! All is working fine.
