Just to be clear:
That error message shows while installing package.

I want to know more at the same time:
I tried install that package on anoter machine, The first installation was smooth 
and clear. The next one ends with error.
I tried to run postinst script with 'debconf -s postinst' and this works excellent.
Installed with dpkg (set -x) returns (30) "question skipped". This happens 
even if I unregister or reset the only one question, and even if the answer
is false or true. And even if package was purged after installation.
(if I understood manual correctly 'dh_installdebconf' in rules should unregister all 
templates  from debconf database)
