dpkg slightly bent

I had a crash while using Kpackage last night (nothing to do with software, 
it's a hardware fault).  I'm up and running again after much fscking, but  
now Kpackage (or rather, dpkg which it calls) won't work.    I get the 
message   'failed to open /var/lib/dpkg/available - no such file or 

Sure enough, there's no such file.  There is a available-old  file - should I 
just copy that as 'available' and continue?   Or will it get something 
fatally out of sync?
