Well, the error message says that the cluster configuration file

So I wonder whether you initialized the database at all; normally
that action would set up a postgresql.conf file as a byproduct.
With a bare Postgres installation you'd run initdb for that purpose.
But since you're apparently using Debian's packaging of Postgres,
I'd recommend using whatever script they provide for the purpose.
Reading the package's documentation would tell you that.
