That looks like a bug with that package, but you might be able to side-step that bug by temporarily making  /usr/bin/update-alternatives be something else... something like

# mv /usr/bin/update-alternatives /usr/bin/update-alternatives.ORIG
# ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/update-alternatives

then remove debian-edu-artwork

and then restore:

# mv /usr/bin/update-alternatives.ORIG /usr/bin/update-alternatives
