Try:

sudo apt-get --reinstall insall pppconfig

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #2

The error message "reading files list for package 'pppconfig': Input/output error" might indicate that you have a consistency problem in your file system.

You should run a file system check.

sudo rm -r /var/lib/dpkg/info/pppconfig*
sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq pppconfig
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pppconfig

Can you help with this problem?
