But pressing <Enter> or clicking on <OK> does nothing... the authorization dialog box stays open and only responds to <cancel>. If I log in as another user or as root, this problem does not occur and authorization dialogs work as expected.

OK, I installed dpkg, but there is nothing such as dpkg-reconfigure... I have now:
dpkg                 dpkg-divert          dpkg-scanpackages
dpkg-architecture    dpkg-genchanges      dpkg-scansources
dpkg-buildpackage    dpkg-gencontrol      dpkg-shlibdeps
dpkg-checkbuilddeps  dpkg-name            dpkg-source
dpkg-deb             dpkg-parsechangelog  dpkg-split
dpkg-distaddfile     dpkg-query           dpkg-statoverride
