I had a similar problem yesterday upgrading from potato to woody. The way I
solved it was by installing individually the packages which I thought might be
apt-get install debconf
apt-get install perl
until I was able to fix the broken component and complete the unpacking,
installing, and setting up of apt-get dist-upgrade. I did it by trial and
error (try whatever sequence you prefer) until things started working again.
