What output do you get when running
invoke-rc.d nginx rotate

That bug report asks the same question.
The answer there suggests that something changed in the init script.

Perhaps revert to the previous init script; perhaps change your logrotate
script to do what is needed (send a USR1 signal to the nginx master
process) using whatever new means your system provides?
I think that both of those scripts come from the packager, so that might
be the best place to get a "will work on next update" solution.
