Please give the details of the exact command you're running.

In any case, you might try to connect as user postgres.

psql -d template1 -U postgres

If you're able to  connect to the psql shell, try checking the users 
catalog via:

select * from pg_user;

Then, you can check whether the user you're referring to actually exists.
