When I try launch Ipython qtconsole from terminal, I get the following error:

python: /build/buildd/sip4-4.13.2/siplib/siplib.c:7915:
sip_api_can_convert_to_type: Assertion `(((td)->td_flags & 0x0007) ==
0x0000) || (((td)->td_flags & 0x0007) == 0x0002)' failed. Aborted
(core dumped)

My guess is the QT broken packages, but I don't know which ones! I could really use your opinions in solving this issue.
