It exists only to provide a migration path for legacy data to the PostgreSQL database (and to provide a little extra test coverage to allow us to test multiple implementations of a subset of functionality).  The right fix here is probably to remove all configuration options which would allow you to attempt to use it in a running server until someone volunteers to maintain it and keep it up to date :-).

I was trying to use it as an actual backend. I guess that is why it 
didn't work. So, are there any upgrade instructions on how to migrate 
from the file store to postgresql? I think that this would be done 
automatically. Even then, I would like to know the manual instructions 
for performing migration.
