dpkg throws this error:
dpkg: parse error, in file `/var/lib/dpkg/available' near line 163032 package `libstdc++2.10':
field name `distribution' must be followed by colon
This is the package it is complaining about
Maintainer: Debian GCC maintainers <email@example.com>
Architecture: e server should have contain the Packages.gz file from each
distribution area being installed (usually stable, contrib and
non-free) as well as the corresponding binary/*/*.deb files.
The easiest way for them to get this is to make a (partial) copy of
the distribution site's directory hierarchy, if possible.
