So your installation of PSGML seems to be broken.  How did you install
it, and how was that installation different from what you had with
Emacs 25?

Of course!  You are finally using PSGML, not another mode which just
happens to have the same name...

I don't know.  This message doesn't come from PSGML, assuming you have
the latest version 1.3.5 of PSGML.  Or are you using an older version?

In the tarball for PSGML 1.3.5 I see the file psgml.texi that is the
manual.  The installation with package.el is supposed to produce the
Info manual from it, but you can also read the Texinfo sources

Are you using the latest version of PSGML?  If not, please do.  Also,
I recommend installing from ELPA with package.el.
