Can you reproduce this again and again via apt-get -f install or dpkg-reconfigure mythtv-common?

If so, can you please add a set -x to the second or third line of the script so we can see where it's failing?

The script is stored in /var/lib/dpkg/info/mythtv-common.postinst. You should be able to access it as soon as you hit a failure.
