Gitlab gitlab-ctl reconfigure broken

I did a ctrl-C in a gitlab-ctl reconfigure and the whole gitlab environment got broke, psql failed to find a socket repeatably.

I tried a apt-get remove gitlab-ce followed by reinstall but that failed totally !

Things went wrong with runit and redis and uninstalling them and reinstalling gitlab yet again failed.

I seem unable to get back to base to do a reinstall without it failing

heres a pastebin of what I am getting after a system reset and a reinstall :-

Also the installation seems to do too many retries and does not balk out but continues after a failure conditions.
