Guido G�nther dixit:

>The module is shipped by the virtinst package. Can you check
>/usr/share/virt-manager for that:
> ls -l   /usr/share/virt-manager/virtinst/

ls: cannot access /usr/share/virt-manager/virtinst/: No such file or directory


ii  virtinst              1:1.0.1-4       all             Programs to create and clone virtual machines


After “sudo apt-get install --reinstall virtinst”, virt-manager works.

Maybe /usr/share/virt-manager/virtinst was a symlink once,
or something else did a symlink/directory change, which is
not supported by dpkg? This is the only way I can explain
