Gmane
From: Philipp Kern <pkern <at> debian.org>
Subject: Bug#659782: does not cope with multiarch packages being installed
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.debian.devel.dpkg.bugs
Date: Monday 13th February 2012 18:01:06 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Package: popularity-contest
Version: 1.53
Severity: important
User: [email protected]
Usertags: multiarch

I just received the following mail from anacron:

/etc/cron.daily/popularity-contest:
Package `libc6-i686' is not installed.
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.
Package `mksh' is not installed.
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.

Those are multiarch packages I have installed:

$ dpkg -l | grep libc6-i686
ii  libc6-i686:i386  2.13-26  Embedded GNU C Library: Shared libraries
[i686 optimized]

Interestingly mksh:i386 is reduced to mksh in `dpkg -l':

ii  mksh  40.4-2  MirBSD Korn Shell

However `dpkg -l mksh' gives this:

un  mksh    (no description available)
