You should really use:

  dpkg --get-selections '*' > myselection.txt

Difference is the '*' gives you a list of installed, removed and purged
packages.  Without it you get only a list of installed packages.  So you
won't get a true mirror other machine.  The * in inside single quotes to
protect it from the shell.
