dpkg --set-selections <list

I am having trouble with the following:

$ dpkg --get-selections >list (this appears to work okay)


# dpkg --set-selections <list 

The command gives an error which is repeated over and over.

dpkg: warning: package not in database at line 341

This worked fine for me on a previous occasion, so I am doing something
stupid - but I cannot see it.

The only difference that I know of is that I am trying to do this to
a to an installation of sid within virtualbox. 

That is it.
