Ok, from the exit status code I can infere that it's probably either invoke-rc.d or update-rc.d that caused dpkg to fail (they tend to error out with this exit status). update-rc.d: error: insserv rejected the script header dpkg: error processing initscripts (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Setting up cups (1.5.3-5+deb7u1) ... dpkg: error processing package xserver-xorg-core (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of gsmartcontrol: gsmartcontrol depends on smartmontools; however: Package smartmontools is not configured yet. http://thewebparrots.com/dpkg-error/dpkg-error-processing-smartmontools.php

Errors were encountered while processing: initscripts [email protected]:~$ Shall I now try to remove it as you suggest after that?
