Sorry, your logs are in French, and I'm not able to gain enough information from the logs to figure out what's wrong.

I have reproduced the problem. It appears that the prerm script might not actually do anything. This is easy to fix with a oneliner (true) in the prerm. Committed upstream. Uploaded to karmic. Awaiting approval by the release team.

This bug was fixed in the package byobu - 2.38-0ubuntu3

---------------
byobu (2.38-0ubuntu3) karmic; urgency=low

  * Cherry-pick upstream r780
  * debian/prerm: the for loop might not actually do anything, so make
    sure we do "something", like run "true", LP: #441788
