Bug#153200: dselect: update reports wrong "available" pathname

Package: dselect
Version: 1.10.4
Severity: minor

When doing a "dselect update", the following is reported:

    Reading Package Lists... Done
    Building Dependency Tree... Done
    Merging Available information
    Replacing available packages info, using /var/cache/apt/available.

Except that there is no such file.  The only 'available' on the system
is /var/lib/dpkg/available.

I briefly poked through the dpkg source but I can't figure out where the
updateavailable function is called from, so there's no patch included.
Sorry.  :-)
