Trying to install any of ubuntustudio- (ubuntustudio-audio, ubuntustudio-font-meta, etc.) "tasks" with tasksel always fails, saying "tasksel: aptitude failed (100)" (while other options, like lamp-server, for example, work ok). Why?

Just trying this I get the same problem. There is a similar but ever so slightly different bug report open, that I suggest you mark as affecting you.

Run tasksel with the --test option, it will only write on the terminal the command it would run.
