Hi Andreas,

thanks for the report.

I'm quite surprised that this only comes up now, so this is maybe
related to the fixes for either #766015 or #707760.

I'm also surprised because our own piuparts didn't find that issue:

After a first glance I don't understand why /etc/alternatives/rzsh
still points to /bin/zsh4 despite /bin/zsh5 has a higher priority:

>  /etc/alternatives/rzsh -> /bin/zsh4    not owned

Then again, there seems an

  update-alternatives --remove rzsh /bin/zsh4

missing in zsh.postinst. I'll check if adding the above line to
zsh.postinst would suffice. Any explicit suggestions are appreciated.
