Bug#513864: apt: false "Package is not available" message

Package: apt
Version: 0.7.20
Severity: normal

The following is my attempt to install liblzo2-2 on my laptop.  I have
installed it on other i386 machines running Lenny without any problem.

When inspecting the files under /var/lib/apt/lists the package seems to have
the correct data.

# apt-get install liblzo2-2
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package liblzo2-2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package liblzo2-2 has no installation candidate
