dpkg doesn't have a manual page.  instead it has a page inviting people
to write one.

|Come to think of it, my system doesn't think there are ANY manual

|No manual entry for man

|Why doesn't man find any man pages?

"dpkg -S /usr/man/man1/man.1" revealed to me that this file belongs to
the "man" package.  Do you have it installed (test with "dpkg -l man")?
