Retry doesn't seem to work.

any chance you can try it with plain git source / nightly snapshot to see if its not related to packaging?

I could reproduce the described error.

The problem here is that the PostgreSQL server is only being configured after foreman-pgsql or foreman is has been installed and the appropriate hook for creating the PostgreSQL user/database has been executed.

A quick workaround is installing the package postgresql before installing foreman-pgsql.

Should be fixed in latest package in our testing repository.

@Grigory, please test if the error still occurs on your system with the latest package.
