I'll bet you have foreign keys referencing this table, and the
referencing columns do not have indexes.  PG will let you do that
... but it makes updates and deletes horribly slow.  You generally
want to add those indexes.

If they *are* indexed, check for datatype mismatches.  That's
another thing that kills performance ...
