Additional information:

If i install everything (as root) manual (with GDebi or dpkg), there's no problem...

In fact you need to get both an updated version of mindi-busybox (which now provides an init file) and mindi (which moved it's init as rcS). Which version of debian are you using ? THere should be packages correct for all versions, but maybe there is a glitch somewher in the generation process.

I'm using Debinan Wheezy, Kernel version: 3.0.0-1-686-pae (see system-info.txt for detailed info)

Could be a bug in Debian synaptic, have to check log files for that.

I've downloaded the latest from

(US Mirror)

I will keep trying to update mondo-archive and dependencies trough mirror and report errors here...

I have now regenerated all the packages for this version, so you should get also the required mindi-busybox one as well which should help fix this issue.
