unpack error

I installed youtube-dl on the Sid installation tonight
and noticed a dpkg error  which didn't halt the process.

This is what happened:

Selecting previously unselected package libavdevice53:i386.

Options marked [*] produce a lot of output - pipe it through 'less' or 'more' !

Is this a major problem? I ask because the installation went ahead
without aborting.
