Good! After a sudden blackout, vCenter did not start, but best of all, I tried to start replicas of previous days and the problem was also. I enclose what I get when I force the start of the services:
Operation not cancellable. Please wait for it to finish...

can you try this
# ls -l /storage/db/vpostgres/postmaster.pid
-rw------- 1 vpostgres users 45 Oct 30 17:20 /storage/db/vpostgres/postmaster.pid
Try to cat/less on the postmaster.pid file, it will have junk characters.
Move the postmaster.pid file to backup or some other folder
# mv /storage/db/vpostgres/postmaster.pid /storage/db/vpostgres/postmaster.pid_bkp
You should be able to start the vPostgres service now and see a new pid file automatically getting created.
Can you run df -h and see if db mount point is running out space which stops postgres service to come up ?
if possible post the output of df -h
