This bug looks like it could be the same as bug #437783

After install postfix says: "Postfix was not set up.  Start with cp
/usr/share/postfix/main.cf.debian /etc/postfix/main.cf"

Doing this cp fixed the errors for me. Before that I would always get
the following on ifup/ifdown:

/usr/sbin/postconf: fatal: open /etc/postfix/main.cf: No such file or directory
cp: `/etc/resolv.conf' and `/etc/resolv.conf' are the same file
run-parts: /etc/resolvconf/update-libc.d/postfix exited with return code 1
run-parts: /etc/resolvconf/update.d/libc exited with return code 1

Fix: The file /etc/postfix/main.cf should be installed by default as
part of the postfix package, or all scripts that expect it to exist
should be updated to handle the case where it doesn't. In my case, I
never actually installed postfix, it was apparently a dependency of bsd-
mailx, which is a bit of a mystery as nothing I have installed seems to
depend on.
