Bug#188965: problem is with dpkg-multicd

reassign 188965 dpkg-multicd
severity 188965 critical

I have this problem as well, but noticed the following:

# ll /usr/bin/dpkg-scanpackages*
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root         7201 Oct  9  2001 /usr/bin/dpkg-scanpackages
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root         6667 Apr 26 22:19 /usr/bin/dpkg-scanpackages.dpkg

# dpkg-divert --list | grep dpkg
diversion of /usr/bin/dpkg-scanpackages to /usr/bin/dpkg-scanpackages.dpkg by dpkg-multicd
diversion of /usr/share/man/man8/dpkg-scanpackages.8.gz to /usr/share/man/man8/dpkg-scanpackages.dpkg.8.gz by dpkg-multicd

No wonder there is a problem... and the dpkg-shipped version does work
correctly.  This seems to advocate for removal of the now-obsolete
dpkg-multicd package.
