Attempts to use WAL-E with obviously missing secrets

PostgreSQL Charm

Bug Description

If the wal_e_storage_uri is set but there are no secrets, the charm should block. Currently it continues oblivious, with the charm apparently working but doomed.

WAL archiving will fail on the master, and it will accumulate WAL files until it runs out of disk space (or alerts go off, assuming nagios is wired up). Restarting standby servers will fail, unable to see if there are WAL files that need to be replayed.
