>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: installer-plugin
>    Affects Versions: 1.5.5
>         Environment: Ubuntu 9.10 with local ubuntu repository

> After adding the debian package to a local ubuntu repository, apt-get update on any machine
which uses that directory, gives the following error:
> Reading package lists... Error!
> E: Problem parsing dependency Depends
> E: Error occurred while processing apacheds (NewVersion1)
> E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/upd.kontorsplatsen.se_dists_kalamondin_main_binary-amd64_Packages
> E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
> The package installs fine with dpkg --install.
> I suspect the problem is that the control file for the package has an empty Depends:
line. Packages with no dependencies should probably omit the Depends line altogether.
