Hello Christian,

Thank you for your very prompt support.

I ever do the update/upgrade process with apt-get, so I can't figure out 
how this situation got me here.

I didn't check the symlinks at /etc/rc*.d before I send it as a bug. I'm 
sorry for that mistaken.

Well, the symlinks was strangely pointing  to "/samba". Don't know how, 
again, how it was modified. But before the upgrade with apt-get they was 
I restore the original symlink to points to "/etc/init.d/samba" and the 
upgrade process finished with no more unmet dependencies.

Thank you again, Chirstian.

Best regards,
