Hey, hang on there. There's three packages broken. Reinstall is hardly
called for yet.

Would it have over-written /etc/passwd and /etc/group with a fresh one per
chance? Killing off your user, the sshd user and the smmsp user/group, and
the privoxy group.

You created yourself a new user. Your UID may have changed. Just check
that all files in your home directory belong to you with 'ls -l'. If not
you'll need something like
chown -R darragh.darragh /home/darragh
to regain ownership. You can either create the users for those other
packages by hand or just reinstall the packages which will do it for you.
