Package: pki-base
Version: 10.9.0~a2-2
Severity: serious

Dear Maintainer,

here is the problem:

Setting up pki-base (10.9.0~a2-2) ...
dpkg: error processing package pki-base (--configure):
 installed pki-base package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

The problem comes from the postinst script that tries to execute this command:

# pki-upgrade --silent
ERROR: option --silent not recognized
Usage: pki-upgrade [OPTIONS]

  --status                       Show upgrade status only. Do not perform upgrade.
  --revert                       Revert the last version.
  --validate                     Validate upgrade status.

  -X                             Show advanced options.
  -v, --verbose                  Run in verbose mode.
      --debug                    Run in debug mode.
  -h, --help                     Show this help message.

Removing the --silent option fixes the problem.
