I can not reproduce this behavior.

However I have had one other user complain of this behavior and it was due to a faulty PHP install.
"apt-get -f install" and then a re-install of ampache corrected his problem.

Thank you very much for your bug report. It reminds me that this particular section in the postinst needs some additional work.
