Bug#41038: apt: apt-get says incorrect dependency

Package: apt
Version: 0.3.11

I try to install liburi-perl using apt-get, apt-get says
`libmime-base64-perl is not installed'.  But libmime-base64-perl is
already installed.  apt-get should say:

  liburi-perl: Depends: perl but it is not installed

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  liburi-perl: Depends: libmime-base64-perl but it is not installed
E: Sorry, broken packages
