Dear Adrian and Tom, thanks for your attention.
I did an upgrade on Friday. I use to do this every week.
Log file informed:
2016-10-15 06:15:20 BRT [995-1] FATAL: data directory
"/var/lib/postgresql/9.5/main" has group or world access
2016-10-15 06:15:20 BRT [995-2] DETAIL: Permissions should be u=rwx (0700).
The problem with permissions was already indicated to .pgpass
So I did a "sudo chmod 0700 main" at /var/lib/postgresql/9.5/ directory and
I could connect postgres again!
A cannot understand what happened. How an upgrade changes the permissions
of files an folders? I work with more two desktops with the same framework
(I7, 8 GB, Ubuntu 16.04, PostgreSQL, ...) and it did not happen.
Well, but I have my database available now. Thanks.
