This sounds like a problem with upgrading the system-wide {g,}vimrc
files.  Most likely, when prompted on how to handle the new versions of
these files you told dpkg to keep your current version.  You can either
purge and reinstall vim-common & vim-gui-common or manually handle
updating your /etc/vim/{g,}vimrc files.  If you go for the latter, there
should be a vimrc.dpkg-dist or vimrc.dpkg-new file that is what would
have been installed.  You can compare and merge any changes you had in
your vimrc.
