Your statusfile is very important.

Therefore you have some backups:

# ls /var/lib/dpkg
alternatives/          methlock               status.yesterday.2.gz
available              methods/               status.yesterday.3.gz
available-old          predep-package         status.yesterday.4.gz
cmethopt               status                 status.yesterday.5.gz
diversions             status-old             status.yesterday.6.gz
diversions-old         status.bak             updates/
info/                  status.yesterday.0     
lock                   status.yesterday.1.gz          

One of these still there?
