What error do you get?

Something like

update-xmlcatalog: error: entity already registered
dpkg: error processing docbook-xml (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

has already been reported as #482140.

Please check at


and tell us if is the same problem, so both bug reports can be merged.

PS: When reporting a bug report, please try to provide as much valuable info
as possible, provided your mail does not get too long. Just saying 'this does
not work' provides little info.
