That looks like a command that would go in /etc/network/interfaces.
Run 'man interfaces' for the syntax used in that file; post-up is
described in the 'iface options' section.

You shouldn't need to play around with update-rc.d for openvpn; the
debian package already comes with symlinks in /etc/rc?.d/ installed.
Check that they're still there by running 'ls -l

Have you edited /etc/default/openvpn? It looks like you need to set
the AUTOSTART variable to say what VPNs you want to start up.
