NAME

       deb-postinst - package post-installation maintainer script

SYNOPSIS

       postinst

DESCRIPTION

       A  package  can  perform  several  post-installation  actions  via  maintainer scripts, by
       including an executable postinst file in its control archive (i.e. DEBIAN/postinst  during
       package creation).

       The script can be called in the following ways:

       postinst configure old-version
              After the package was installed.

       postinst triggered trigger-name...
              After the package was triggered.

       old-postinst abort-upgrade new-version
              If prerm fails during upgrade or fails on failed upgrade.

       old-postinst abort-remove
              If prerm fails during removal.

       postinst abort-deconfigure in-favour new-package new-version
              [ removing old-package old-version ]
              If prerm fails during deconfiguration of a package.

       postinst abort-remove in-favour new-package new-version
              If prerm fails during replacement due to conflict.
