I'm not a postgresql expert (which is why I'm following these instructions), but the suggestion to change /var/lib/postgres/data/postgresql.conf to only listen on seems wrong, when the default setting is to use 'localhost', which implies both and ::1, (i.e. localhost on both IPv4 and IPv6).

The instructions ought to say "make sure it's listening on the 'localhost' connection unless you know what you're doing and want to accept connections from elsewhere".
