post-update is likely simply called by git. It is installed by
haskell-filestore (note the filestore in the path in the error
message!); filestore has this code:

       -- Add the post-update hook, so that changes made remotely via git
       -- will be reflected in the working directory.
       postupdatepath <- getDataFileName $ "extra" </> "post-update"
       postupdatecontents <- B.readFile postupdatepath
       let postupdate = repo </> ".git" </> "hooks" </> "post-update"
       B.writeFile postupdate postupdatecontents
       perms <- getPermissions postupdate
       setPermissions postupdate (perms {executable = True})

The script is in libghc-filestore-data, but there is no dependency from
gitit to filestore-data, it seems.

Does it work for you if you install libghc-filestore-data?

Note that libghc-filestore-dev does ship this file
$ cat /usr/lib/haskell-packages/extra-packages/filestore-
libghc-filestore-data (>=
so in theory, this dependency should be automatically added to gitit
Depends: ${haskell:Extra-Depends},

Might be a bug in dh_haskell_extra_depends, did not look further.

Does this unblock you?
