Sometimes the system is damaged due to the elimination or modification of files belonging to a package. The easiest way to recover it is to reinstall. Unfortunately apt considers it is already installed and refuses to run --reinstall option of apt-get command can help you.

Example : reinstall postfix

apt-get –-reinstall install postfix
