You seem to have a problem with the "emacs" alternative that has
likely been caused by removing the preferred flavor
(emacs-snapshot?).  See
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=433567 for an
instance of this problem.

I'd suggest you try "sudo update-alternatives --auto emacs" and see if
this fixes the problem.
