Has anyone a clue what could be going wrong?

first try to rename your procps.conf as

sudo mv /etc/init/procps.conf /etc/init/procps.conf.old

if it works , well and good otherwise last workaround is to download procps (1:3.3.3-2ubuntu7) and libprocps0 (1:3.3.3-2ubuntu7) then installing them manually.

You can download them from -

http://packages.ubuntu.com/saucy/procps

and

http://packages.ubuntu.com/saucy/libprocps0

Updating them can fix the issue as mentioned here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/procps/+bug/1157643 . its a well known bug , visit the link provided .

hope this time it will work.
