So at some point in the past, you have modified
/etc/network/if-up.d/upstart, and on upgrade when asked whether to use the
local or package-provided version of this script, you chose the local one.

The fix is to run 'sudo mv /etc/network/if-up.d/upstart.dpkg-dist
/etc/network/if-up.d/upstart'. Before you do that, however, please attach
the output of this command:

$ diff -u /etc/network/if-up.d/upstart{,.dpkg-dist}

Do you remember modifying this file by hand previously? If so, do you
remember why you modified it?
