    Right, the newt_0.52.20-8ubuntu1 ( https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...52.20-8ubuntu1 ) was bad. It was impossible to install and it damaged the setup if installed in a way that not even the new fixed version of newt_0.52.20-8ubuntu2 ( https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...52.20-8ubuntu2 ) could be installed properly.

    The only way to solve this is as follows (in case the bad version was installed):
    - download network-manager ( https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source....16.0-0ubuntu2 ) to be later installed manually if needed
    - purge newt (libnewt0.52, whiptail) with the network-manager and friendly recovery
    - reinstall the fixed newt (libnewt0.52, whiptail) and network-manager + friendly recovery

    I tried this and it works.

    First time i'm seeing such an issue: even can't purge that libnewt0.52 package, either via synaptic or terminal: get an error script 1 code.

    Solution found to bypass that lock: edit '/var/lib/dpkg/status' , find and purge the whole libnewt0.52 block, save; then reconfiguring was possible.
    Now that issue is solved.

    Thanks Harry for the help.
