You probably refer to the following string from dpkg:
   Selecting previously deselected package <package name>.

Like in:
Selecting previously deselected package libsasl2.
(Reading database ... 8724 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking libsasl2 (from .../libsasl2_2.1.19-1.5_sparc.deb) ...
Selecting previously deselected package libldap2.
Unpacking libldap2 (from .../libldap2_2.1.30-3_sparc.deb) ...
Selecting previously deselected package setserial.
Unpacking setserial (from .../setserial_2.17-39_sparc.deb) ...

Is that correct?
Is your comment that "previously deselected" is unclear as it was never 
installed in the first place and therefore never "deselected" (which 
implies some active action by the user)?

Would "Selecting previously unselected package <package name>" be an
                            ^^
improvement?
