Sounds like this is the error:
      Code:
In toplevel form:
ess-stan-d.el:114:1:Error: Wrong type argument: listp, font-lock-function-name-face


I am not into emacs (nor into ess) so I have no idea how to fix it¹ and a quick look at the BTS for it suggests that a) ess upload is very fresh and b) no bug looking like this was reported so far.
http://packages.qa.debian.org/e/ess.html

So you should report this bug in Debian:
Install reportbug (if not already installed), run 'reportbug ess' and follow on-screen advice.
More details (and alternatives) can be found at http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting

( ¹ From the output it looks like the postinst-script is long & complicated – and that is usually only the case if its needed that way, so I wouldn't advice to do the 'exit 0' workaround. )
