you are missing the sensible-mda file,
you probably had synaptic(?) update your sendmail stuff, but you had that installed by selecting the sendmail items instead of the sendmail wrapper package. selecting the wrapper package will correct this, so does selecting sensible-mda e few lines below in all packages.

Install the sensible-mda package on Debian. This package should be a dependency of the sendmail metapackage.
