deb-postinst - package post-installation maintainer script
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. The list of space-separated trigger-names is passed as the second argument. old-postinst abort-upgrade new-version If prerm fails during upgrade or fails on failed-upgrade. old-postinst abort-remove If prerm fails during remove. postinst abort-deconfigure in-favour new-package new-version [ removing old-package old-version ] If prerm fails during deconfigure in-favour of a package. postinst abort-remove in-favour new-package new-version If prerm fails during remove in-favour for replacement due to conflict.
