This is definitly no problem with dselect.

This is a problem with apt-cache.

In /usr/lib/dpkg/methods/apt/update line 29
there is a  'apt-cache dumpavailable > somewhere'
If you try this command you'll see it will fail with the mentioned
error. I reassign this to apt. 
I'll try to track this down this weekend if I'll find some spare time.

Heute ist nicht alle Tage, ich komm' wieder, keine Frage!!!
