For Python2.7-minimal i've tried

apt-get install --reinstall python2.7-minimal

Without success. All command like

apt-get clean apt-get -f install

Return the same.

Any help will be realy appreciated for python, also for other packages too.

I've nearly found and issue with help found here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1763604&page=3.

Simply doing dpkg -P --force depends <packages who sucks>

More infos about this arguments : http://tipstricks.itmatrix.eu/?p=755

And after install it with aptitude sudo aptitude install mysql-server-5.1

Not the cleanest way, but no more errors !
