It would seem vzquota installed a broken initscript previously, and setting up cherokee now fails because of it. Can you remove the package vzquota and try again with apt-get -f install? If you can't remove it try moving /etc/init.d/vzquota to some other place temporarily and run apt-get -f install to try to finish configuring cherokee.

By the way this is probably good material for a bug report:

But is the init script there? – Eduardo Ivanec May 10 '11 at 15:58
I filed this bug report: – hale May 10 '11 at 18:31
vzquota is not installed but yes the init script is there. Removing the script allowed apt-get to configure cherokee successfully. Thanks :) – hale May 10 '11 at 18:31
So did you try the workaround (moving it temporarily elsewhere)? – Eduardo Ivanec May 10 '11 at 18:32
Yes that worked ((ninja)edited comment above) – hale May 10 '11 at 18:38
