About libdevmapper1.02, I had today the same problem and I saw that I had also installed a packet with a name libdevmapper1.02.1. So I purged the old one libdevmapper1.02, and the init.d script (along with the error it causes) went away. About the other packages causing warnings, try purging them if you don't need them. Hope I helped a little... G.
