Package: aptitude

# aptitude search ~i~nblue
i   bluetooth                                       - Bluetooth support
i A bluez                                           - Bluetooth tools and daemons
i   bluez-compat                                    - BlueZ 3.x compatibility binaries
i A libbluetooth3                                   - Library to use the BlueZ Linux Bluetooth stack
# aptitude why ~i~nblue
E: Unable to locate package ~i~nblue

The latter should work just like
# aptitude why bluetooth bluez bluez-compat libbluetooth3
i   bluetooth     Suggests bluez-cups
p   bluez-cups    Depends  cups
p   cups          Suggests hplip
p   hplip         Suggests python-notify
i   python-notify Depends  libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.8.0)
i   libgtk2.0-0   Suggests gvfs
i A gvfs          Suggests gvfs-backends
p   gvfs-backends Depends  libbluetooth3 (>= 4.91)
