nearly similar terms in man page on dpkg



Hello!

Maybe it's just me, but I do have problems
understanding the man page here:


--update-avail, --merge-avail Packages-file

-A, --record-avail package-file...

I do understand the difference between the --update and the --merge option,
but I'm unsure about the terms

Packages-file

package-file

Does the latter mean "Meta Package"?

Thanks!
bo
