Hi Achim,
if I understood correctly a script called


will be always executed at the end of the postinstall script
sequence and never renamed as ".done".

I am moving the octave update script in

so the new octave update should work as:

1) every octave-forge preremove/postinstall script
   touches /var/lib/octave/update.flag

2) zp_octave_finish.dash checks if
   /var/lib/octave/update.flag exists
  and if so execute
  /usr/bin/octave-cli /var/lib/octave/update_packages_list

3) /var/lib/octave/update_packages_list
