With this line you can find the offending package:

$ for j in `find <path> -name '*.deb'` ;do echo $j; dpkg -c $j | grep '/tmp/$'; done 

But I don't think that you'll find one.

In my experience this happens when untarring directly under /tmp a 
tarball containing ./
Better make a new dir under /tmp and untar inside it.

When happens use chmod 1777 /tmp to recreate the sticky bit.
