And that is EXACTLY what cause your problems. You did not purge the
package, but you removed /etc/freeradius manualy.

I don't see how you can get into that state though. running "apt-get
purge freeradius-common" should've purged freeradius-config as well.
Did you use previously use "apt-get remove" instead of "apt-get

In any case, try Matthew's suggestion first. If THAT doesn't work,
then it's probably better to create a new VM and start from scratch,
or ask help from someone more knowledgable with debian packaging.
