You may be right, but it's not clear from that snippet alone - that just 
tells us that ucf became aware of that file on the 5th of November.

Is rsyslog present in /var/lib/ucf/hashfile* and/or 
/var/lib/ucf/registry* particularly from before you attempted the upgrade?

My system doesn't think that file belongs to rsyslog.
