This breaks down in two parts. The first part is a dpkg error message; the
second one a libc error message.

dpkg's po/de.po has
#: main/processarc.c:719
#, c-format
msgid "package control info rmdir of `%.250s' didn't say not a dir"
msgstr ""
"Paket-Control-Info rmdir von »%.250s« ergab nicht, dass dies kein "
"Verzeichnis ist"

glib's debian/patches/cvs.dpatch has:
+#. TRANS Directory not empty, where an empty directory was expected. Typically,
+#. TRANS this error occurs when you are trying to delete a directory.
+#: stdio-common/../sysdeps/gnu/errlist.c:737
+#: stdio-common/../sysdeps/unix/sysv/sysv4/solaris2/sparc/errlist.c:123
+msgid "Directory not empty"
+msgstr "Das Verzeichnis ist nicht leer"

So dpkg is trying to rm a directory that turns out not not to be empty.
