It's unclear to me why this package should have gotten into a state
requiring reinstallation, and it's unlikely that we will have enough
debugging information here to figure it out.
For recovering, the advice here applies:
in particular, sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq python-
pyasn1; sudo apt-get install python-pyasn1
Your bug report also shows a dpkg crash due to an invalid free. This
would be something we should also look at, but we would need a full
symbolic backtrace to debug it. Is the crash reproducible for you? Can
you install the apport package and trigger the crash, capturing the core
to /var/crash so we can debug it?
