I'm reasonably certain this is "python2.7:any", not "python2.7:all".  The
latter would be a bug, the former is deliberate behavior supported in recent
versions of Debian.

What version of these packages are you trying to install, and on what
version of Debian are you trying to install them?  It sounds like you're
trying to install binary packages built for the current testing/unstable
version of Debian onto a stable system.  This is not supported because a
newer version of the python2.7 package is needed that supports
cross-architecture dependencies.

There are backported versions of samba available at
http://backports.debian.org/, where the sources from unstable are rebuilt
against the stable version of Debian.  You should be able to use those
packages on your system without error.

Hope that helps,
