comment apt-get, unmet dependencies, … “but it is not going to be installed”
@Jos: I did that. Now it works. However, that doesn't really answer my question or what the problem was.

comment how to reinstall config files in /etc of a package
@muru: That link is what I searched for, thanks. :) Moving them out-of-place is also not what I want (it might make the system unusable for important files in /etc). I want them to be replaced directly. Would --force-confnew and --overwrite-conffiles do what I want?

comment how to fix-up system with old configs
@davidbaumann: That are separate questions, and also separate problems, which might not be related. If you think they are related and I should do some things in the answers of other question, then say so, that would really help me.
