I've got a new installation and I'm trying to get Postgresql working.
The database was installed and I started a restoration from a dump on another machine, but that ran into problems because I had forgotten to install the "contrib" package. I used "pg_dropcluster" to drop the old cluster so I could start from scratch, and that's when things went weird.
The first manifestation of this was that /etc/postgresql was just empty. I uninstalled the postgresql package and reinstalled, several times, to no avail.
Is there something I can do to figure out why apt is confused here? I've done this many times on many systems and never seen anything like this happen.
