Works for me:

# apt-get --purge tex-common tetex-\* texlive-\*
# apt-get install tex-common
# apt-get install texlive-latex-recommended
# apt-get install texlive-fonts-recommended
# apt-get install tex4ht

However, texlive-fonts-extra seems to be going backwards:

# apt-get install texlive-fonts-extra
