Hi Daniel,

I put the question to the ubuntugis team and the answer was:

So packages depending on it have to be rebuild (They probably need postgresql-9.1-postgis2.0-scripts which contains all the sql files). Normally they should all be updated for Lucid/Precise now, but for packages like OTB I can't tell because I'm not maintaining them.

Thanks Daniel.

Are you using also the UbuntuGIS PPA?
I don't know details, but I read in some other mailing list (Live DVD) about issues with the recently published PostGIS package.
I hope they will solve this issue soon, but changing package names is not really a good idea, I think.

So right now I have no solution for this except updating the pgRouting package. 
Though I don't want to this all the time UbuntuGIS changes the names of their packages ;-)
 I can't tell the day I will have a time to update the packages, so you may want to compile pgRouting for now.
