I think you might have to purge and reinstall samba, but first you
should fix the broken packages. (I did not see anything that I could
immediately connect to samba, but it is probably better to get this out
of the way first.)

The first thing to do is to tell aptitude to figure things out on its

aptitude install -f

If this has nasty side effects such as scheduling the removal of half of
your system then you should abort the command (you will get that
opportunity in any case, don't worry) and post all output here. We will
then (hopefully) figure out how to proceed based on the symptoms.

If this command runs OK then you should verify that

aptitude search '~b'

finishes without finding any packages anymore. Once that is achieved we
will see about samba.
