You might want to consider using apt-get dist-upgrade instead; it'll
try to upgrade everything, rather than just getting newer versions of
packages.  Also, the -u flag is handy; it shows you the list of
packages that are being upgraded.

This means that the post-removal script from the old version failed,
so dpkg tried the postrm script from the new one, which also failed.
AFAICT, this is a package bug.  Have you had a look at
bugs.debian.org/netsaint-plugins-pgsql to see if this is known?
If it's already been reported, then I guess you'll just have to wait
until a fixed version is released.
