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/
One of these still there?
