dpkg gives me an error

Be sure to reply to that address.

I don't know what I did for this to happen, but when I make apt-get update, or try to install with dpkg -i a package the following error appears:
"dpkg: failed to open package info file `/var/lib/dpkg/available' for reading: No such file or directory
E: Sub-process returned an error code (2)"
How can I work this out? I can't reinstall dpkg, because I can't install deb's. Can't dpkg recreate the available packages file?

Any help would be thankfull
