OK, thank you.

Starting needed me to *stop* the old cluster (using the init script)
in the first place, judging from “ps ax” output… apparently, there
were several Akonadi sessions still open.

I could then successfully upgrade the cluster.

The bug remains: pg_upgradecluster should not fail to upgrade the
cluster (it’s called as root, so it could just use the same mechanism
which the init script uses to stop it), and must not bring the DB into
such an inconsistent state. Apparently, this is nothing new, but my
(and others’) use of psql as KDE backend (instead of a non-database)
will trigger it more often now.
