Bug#52993: apt: "Pathname to install is not absolute"

Package: apt
Version: 0.3.15
Severity: normal

I get the following error:

bio# apt-get --no-download --ignore-missing -f upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done

The following packages have been kept back

Need to get 20.9MB/31.9MB of archives. After unpacking 2983kB will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] 
E: Internal Error, Pathname to install is not absolute 'libpam0g-dev_0.72-1_i386.deb'

I am using a home-made archive created using "apt-move", so much of  the stuff
should be available already.  Not totally sure this is a bug with your stuff--
could be a problem with apt-move (version 3.0-9).  What should I send you for
complete information?
