Great. So it was simply a missing dependency problem.

Sure it is. The above command simply lists all the packages installed on
your machine that have postinstall scripts -- nothing wrong with having
them. The reason I asked you to get this information initially was that
because of your screwed up mounts the postinstall scripts may not have run
properly, and reinstalling the packages was one way of getting them to
re-run, so this showed which packages to reinstall.
