Postgresql is broken now

1. Your Parrot information

  • OS version: run cat /etc/*release
    ```
    Distributor ID: Parrot
    Description: Parrot OS 4.11
    Release: 4.11
    Codename: n/a

     ```
    
  • Kernel version: run uname -a
    ```
    Linux parrot 5.10.0-6parrot1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.28-6parrot1 (2021-04-12) x86_64 GNU/Linux

      ```
    

4. How did you get this error? Are there any steps to procedure it?

For some reason PostgreSQL has stopped working complaining of a missing file. I’ve tried purging the packages and re-installing but it does nothing to fix the issue. The file still doesn’t exist and I have no clue where it’d even be at.

5. Error log or screenshot

For some reason that file no longer exists. I don’t know why but somehow it’s no longer there. Purging all of postgresql13 and reinstalling doesn’t resolve the issue either.
