The error in the logs is:

There are RPC services which were registered with the portmapper
before the configuration was changed.
You need to manually restart them in order for the changes to take effect.
Current registered services:
dpkg: error processing portmap (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

So the first call to rpcinfo in the postinst apparently returned something of interest, and the second call failed.

Could you run the following command and paste the output?:

$ rpcinfo -p 2>/dev/null | grep "tcp\|udp" | grep -v portmapper

From 545083
I got this error when upgrading from karmic to lucid.

rpcinfo -p gives this output:

   program vers proto port
    100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
    100000 2 udp 111 portmapper
