I'm not sure it's fixed. I am attempting a pg_upgrade from 9.2.8 to 9.3.5
and it dies like so:
(...many relations restoring successfully snipped...)
pg_restore: creating SEQUENCE address_address_id_seq
pg_restore: [archiver (db)] Error while PROCESSING TOC:
pg_restore: [archiver (db)] Error from TOC entry 1410; 1259 17670 SEQUENCE
pg_restore: [archiver (db)] could not execute query: ERROR: could not
create file "base/16414/17670": File exists
Inspecting a copy of the source cluster, OID 17670 does indeed correspond
to address_address_id_seq, but inspecting the partially-upgraded cluster
that OID is taken by pg_toast_202359_index. Again conferring with a copy
of the source (9.2.8) cluster, the relation corresponding to filenode
202359 does not have a toast table.
(I know pg-hackers isn't the right place to discuss admin issues, but this
thread is the only evidence of this bug I can find. If anyone can suggest
a workaround I would be infinitely grateful.)
