Default update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for maildir.5.

I am having a problem with the instalation of :
The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 9.10 [ISPConfig 3]:

update-alternatives --remove-all maildir.5
update-alternatives --remove-all maildirquota.7

I have:

----------# update-alternatives --remove-all maildir.5
update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for maildir.5.
----------# update-alternatives --remove-all maildirquota.7
update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for maildirquota.7.

I do:

aptitude remove maildrop
aptitude safe-upgrade
update-alternatives --remove-all maildir.5
update-alternatives --remove-all maildirquota.7
aptitude install maildrop

The problem persissts


falko: Hm, maybe the best is to completely remove all Courier packages before the upgrade, then do the upgrad and install Courier again afterwards. Instead of removing Courier you could also try this with maildrop.


Give me some ideas...
