I am the maintainer, and I can reproduce this error. I do not
know what the problem is (I shall be looking at the dpkg-divert
invocation to see if I have messed up badly). Hmm. Maybe check to see
if the diversion removal should be in prerm.

The ugly hack is to edit /var/lib/dpkg/info/libcgi-perl.* and
remove the dpkg-divert remove invocations.
Any help for this bug shall be appreciated.
