Bug#31606: dpkg-dev: dpkg: cannot scan updates directory `/var/lib/dpkg/updates/': Bad file descriptor

Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.4.1

This is the exact error.
        dpkg-shlibdeps -Tdebian/substvars debian/tmp/usr/X11R6/bin/cheops debian/tmp/usr/lib/cheops/plugins/generic-connect.so debian/tmp/usr/lib/cheops/plugins/vnc-connect.so
	dpkg: cannot scan updates directory `/var/lib/dpkg/updates/': Bad file descriptor
	dpkg-shlibdeps: failure: dpkg --search gave error exit status 2
	dh_shlibdeps: command returned error code
	make: *** [binary-arch] Error 1

It used to work. :) I do know that /var/lib/dpkg/updates/ does exist. It is not damaged, and the disk it sits on is OK too. I can cd to the dir, create files there and delete files there. Let me know if you need more info.
