Although, using SQLite has many disadvantages, I doubt, it has a direct influence on the actual upload process.

Well, it has been a while since I last installed PostgreSQL from scratch, but I never ran into troubles. And since PostgreSQL is an Open Source Project as well, there is a lot of support available, see:

Can I just copy the file dataset to database directory instead of
uploading through web interface?

Make sure you provide a directory for "library_import_dir" in the
universe_wsgi.ini file.  And copy your files to this location (or a sub
directory of it). This will give you an extra option in the admin menu:
'Upload directory of files' and then use the 'Link files without copying
to Galaxy' option.

Alternatively, set "allow_library_path_paste" to 'True' (see also the
comments and warnings in the universe_wsgi.ini file )
