I also created a `var/lib/dpkg/info' directory.

I get this message too.

It looks a lot like a bug with dpkg, but I don't know what is
happening.  It is too bad that dpkg doesn't ever tell you *where* the
`No such file or directory' was, or I'd have some idea of what to look
at next.

Perhaps you should file this as a bug against dpkg,
