Subject: Bug#366241: debfoster2aptitude: cannot find /var/lib/aptitude/pkgstates
From: Martin Orr

Package: debfoster
Version: 2.5-6
Severity: normal

Following the debconf note about debfoster being deprecated, I tried
installing aptitude and running debfoster2aptitude, but got the following
/var/lib/aptitude/pkgstates: No such file or directory at
/usr/sbin/debfoster2aptitude line 31.

I tried running aptitude update; aptitude upgrade and starting the aptitude
curses interface, but none of these created the pkgstates file.

There should be documentation somewhere of what I need to do to configure
aptitude before running debfoster2aptitude.
