somebody else already posted some ideas on how to tell whether it is a package
or not.  useful info:

   dpkg -l "postfix*"

if it's not a package, the best way to upgrade is to backup your postfix
config, delete the .tgz install of postfix, and then apt-get install the latest
postfix packages.  they you never have to worry about it again.

if it is a package then just use apt-get to upgrade postfix.
