Bug#1890: dselect update from packages.gz
I don't know if this is a bug because I don't know if the update
utility supports updating from a gzipd packages file.? I thought I
could do an update of the packages information with a gzipd packages
file but it didn't seem to work quite well:
Updating available packages info, using /home/ftp/pub/debian/packages.gz.
dpkg: parse error, in file `/home/ftp/pub/debian/packages.gz' near line 1:
field name `c`20' must be followed by colon
update available list script returned error exit status 1.
Press RETURN to continue.
