It seems like I have been bitten by the first bug described in the release notes of postgresql 9.3.4: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/devel/static/release-9-3-4.html
I now have e.g. duplicate primary keys. What is the best approach on doing a loop of re-checking of all my constraints (pkeys, fkeys) -> fixing issues -> checking again, to make sure that my data is OK?
I decided to go with an approach on fixing the issue by deleting all constraints, and then recreating them using the following method http://blog.hagander.net/archives/131-Automatically-dropping-and-creating-constraints.html. However I'm currently stuck on an error message, trying to recreate a pkey:
ERROR: failed to find parent tuple for heap-only tuple at (1192248,5) in table "fruits" CONTEXT: SQL statement "ALTER TABLE "pm"."fruits" ADD CONSTRAINT "fruits_pkey" PRIMARY KEY (id)"
What does this mean, and how do I fix that one (I can live with deleting it, if that's an option)?
Another question: Would my data actually be all good, if I just got rid of any duplicate rows by deleting them, and then did a pg_dump, and restored the database from that dump. It would rebuild the data structure - right?
