deb-postrm - package post-removal maintainer script
A package can perform several post-removal actions via maintainer scripts, by including an executable postrm file in its control archive (i.e. DEBIAN/postrm during package creation). The script can be called in the following ways: postrm remove After the package was removed. postrm purge After the package was purged. old-postrm upgrade new-version After the package was upgraded. new-postrm failed-upgrade old-version new-version If the above upgrade call fails. The new-version is passed only since dpkg 1.18.5. postrm disappear overwriter-package overwriter-version After all of the packages files have been replaced. new-postrm abort-install If preinst fails during install. new-postrm abort-install old-version new-version If preinst fails during install for an upgrade of a removed package. The new-version is passed only since dpkg 1.18.5. new-postrm abort-upgrade old-version new-version If preinst fails during upgrade. The new-version is passed only since dpkg 1.18.5.
