It looks like we're providing an extra argument to update-alternatives

--remove-all name
  Remove all alternatives and all of their associated slave links.  name is a name in the alternatives directory.

However, prerm has:

update-alternatives --remove-all nmblookup /usr/bin/nmblookup.samba3
update-alternatives --remove-all net /usr/bin/net.samba3
update-alternatives --remove-all testparm /usr/bin/testparm.samba3
