Package: dpkg
Version: 1.9.20
Severity: normal

Please have a look at the response from the two commands: 

# LANG=C LOCALE=C dpkg --install -f /var/cache/apt/archives/omniorb_1%3a3.0.4.1-7_i386.deb
dpkg-deb: unknown option --install

#  LANG=C LOCALE=C dpkg -i  -f /var/cache/apt/archives/omniorb_1%3a3.0.4.1-7_i386.deb                 
dpkg-deb: unknown option -i

Maybe it does not know what -f is? Then it should say so.

-f is a dpkg-deb option.  dpkg sees this, as passes the entire command line to
dpkg-deb.

dpkg-deb then reports that it doesn't know what -i is.

In short, this is behaving exactly as it should.  Note that the program
reporting the error is dpkg-deb(which is called by dpkg), not dpkg itself.
