Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Reviewing your log files attached to this bug report it seems that a package failed to install due to a segmentation fault in the application being used for the package installation process. Unfortunately, this bug report isn't very useful in its current state and a crash report would be much more useful. Could you try recreating this issue by enabling apport to catch the crash report 'sudo service apport start force_start=1' and then trying to install the same package again? This process will create a new bug report so I am marking this one as Invalid. Thanks again for helping out!

I don't think this is related to wine1.6.

Instead I'm changing this bug to "affects aptdaemon" which you used for installing wine1.6 according to DpkgHistoryLog.txt. Hopefully they understand this better.

This is the relevant, but not very enlightening, part from your log:

Ah, I started my answer before the previous message about package-install-segfault was posted. Please do as advised in that message.
