Well, presumably this is an uncaught bug. paperconf -a should list all
of it's known papersizes. paperconf -d should list the currently
selected one. I imagine either the /usr/sbin/paperconfig script must
have a typo in it. Both paperconfig and paperconf (first is for
setting, second is for reading) seem to work fine in woody. paperconfig
is a shell script, so it's easy enough to send if you like. paperconf
may be your real problem, since paperconfig calls it to get all of the
known paper types. It's a binary however. If more than one person is
having this problem on upgrade, then a bug should be posted against it
so the maintainer can fix it for the next potato update.
You might try
$ dpkg --force-remove-essential --purge libpaperg
$ dpkg -i libpaperg*.deb
DANGER: Careful with that --force stuff.
