Just out of interest, why? That version of dpkg is over a year old, and is
not currently present in any of stable, testing or unstable.

Using dpkg itself, possibly not. The man page of the grep-status tool (from
the grep-dctrl package), however, contains an example invocation to do
grep-status -FStatus -sInstalled-Size,Package -n "install ok installed" |
paste -sd " \n" | sort -n
