I could solve the problem by doing the following:

sudo gedit /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/apt_p2p/AptPackages.py
from apt.progress.old import OpProgress
from apt.progress.base import OpProgress
Restart apt-p2p with:
sudo service apt-p2p restart

I have not tested it with other machines. But aparently, the problem has stopped because no error pops up on restart.

My patch makes aptp2p start. But it will not download packages from peers.
