Thanks for your bugreport.

Here is what causes the error:

Richte wvdial ein (1.60.1) ...
dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten von wvdial (--configure):
 Unterprozess post-installation script mit Signal (Interrupt) getötet

I reassign and set priority to "high" as this is bad for upgrades.

Is your system working ok otherwise?

Changed in update-manager:
importance: Undecided → High
status: New → Triaged
