Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.2
Severity: normal

After upgrading to 1.10.2 (this is the version I noticed it on anyway),
when I try to use the [A]ccess or [U]pgrade options in dselect, I get
the following error message:

master:/home/alan# dselect access
dselect: unable to access method script `/usr/lib/dpkg/methods/disk/setup': No such file or directory

This is caused by those files not existing.  The contents of that
directory is as follows:

master:/usr/lib/dpkg/methods# find

According to the file listing for the dpkg package, this is the package
that the methods/* files are supposed to be in:


I downloaded the .deb manually and extracted it, and found that all the
method files were missing.  I downloaded the source code and (while I
didn't install it) it appeared to have the correct sources for the
method files in the form of a dpkg-1.10.2/methods directory full of
hd.setup hd.unpack, hd.update disk.names, disk.setup files etc.

Below are the contents of the *lib* in the extracted .deb:

alan@phoenix:/tmp/foo$ find | grep lib 

Obviously, something is wrong here, and while it may be me, I don't see
what else I can do to try to get myself "right" outside of re-installing
the dpkg/dselect .debs, assuming they contain the right files of course
