dpkg: error processing metasploit (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
metasploit
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

solution:

gedit /etc/postgresql/9.1/main/postgresql.conf

and change the #listen_addresses = ‘localhost’
and port = 5433 to
listen_addresses = ‘localhost’
and port to 5432
then

service postgresql restart

apt-get remove metasploit && apt-get autoclean
apt-get install metasploit
and it should work just fin.
