I did a half-hearted search at bugs.debian.org, and didn't find an answer. But it seems to me that perhaps the upgrade (update?) failed to finish downloading/unpacking a required dependency (perhaps the "slib" package?). Now during the dpkg-reconfigure, the package requiring the dependency is not finding the dependency.

Perhaps you should try running "apt-get -f install".

Maybe you should check that no partitions (such as /usr or /var) are low on free space.

Perhaps you should try manually installing "slib" to meet the requirement.
