Mind you, I'm not _that_ stupid. Here's the output:
femto:~# head /var/lib/dpkg/available
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Herbert Xu <email@example.com>
If you see any corruption, tell me where.
As the error message says: value for `status' field not allowed in this context
I was rather asking on this list, what value Status: is supposed to contain.
Since this is more a question about the internals of dpkg and Debian, I posted to -devel.
