dpkg-reconfigure -a won't fix a problem

I have an older woman that has debian sarge running. She sometimes
forgets she running synaptic/aptitude update/upgrade.

This morning, she IM'd me, and told me she couldn't finish running
update, and she had no window/shell running, to abort.

I ssh'd into her machine, and attempted to finish her update. The
command line instructed me to "dpkg-reconfigure -a", which I have been
attempting to do for the past 2 hours. It get only so far into "fixing
things, then quits with the error message;

remove/gtk-doc-tools: purging byte-compiled files for emacs21

Any ideas as to how I can fix this?
