Since then PAM produces errors messages, in the /var/log/syslog file
there a lot of line similar to these ones:

Some PAM library or other is missing or partially installed (symlinks missing?). You could try reinstalling libpam-modules:

"apt-get --reinstall install libpam-modules".

There should be four symlinks to pam_unix.so in /lib/security -- reinstalling should recreate these. Check the contents of /etc/pam.d/common-* and that the libraries you're using are actually installed.
