Package: dpkg
The file /var/dpkg/available has become corrupted -- not sure how, but
I cannot see any way to recover.  I am assuming that the solution is
too reinstall everything.  I am assuming there is a package called
dpkg as at present I have no packages

Copy the available-old file over available, if that isn't corrupted --
otherwise empty the available file and use "dselect update" to update it
again.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
