I get the same error on my mixed testing/unstable system - the system 
used to be several months out of date, but it still does the same thing 
after a full dist-upgrade.

By putting a bunch of "echo" statements into the postinst script, I was 
able to identify the source of the error as the "db_version 2.0" line - 
it is this, apparently, which aborts with exit code 10 and no error 
messages. There's no man page for the db_version command.

I took a guess that this line was somehow related to debconf and 
upgraded to unstable's version of debconf, but it made no difference.

Pablo (or anyone), any suggestions?
