Have you thought of / tried using 2 separate databases or tables and switching between them? Since you seem to be updating all the values, it might be a lot faster to re-create the table from scratch without indexes and add those later (maybe followed by a VACUUM ANALYZE) ...

That said, I'm not entirely sure how well postgres' client libraries can deal with tables being renamed while in use, perhaps someone can shed some light on this.
