ok - this worked fine. If I use the -nln flag with the schema prefix the
update in another schema works. Great!
Maybe one could add a remark at http://www.gdal.org/ogr/drv_pg.html that
in case of updating existing PostgreSQL tables in a schema other than
public, the "-nln schemaprefix.tablename" should be used. It would
probably help other people who have the same problem like me.
Question: can I use more than one layer in this case? Can I pass a
comma,separated list of layernames, or multiple -nln parameters? My first
tests seem to indicate, not, which is a bit unfortunate. But maybe I
overlooked something ...
Thanks for the hint,
