Package: aptitude
Version: 0.8-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?

After upgrading aptitude to 0.8.1 I could no longer find package gcc-6
in aptitude even though dpkg -l still found it as it was still installed
on this machine.

I had upgraded gcc-6 using aptitude 0.7.8, but even after downgrading
aptitude to 0.7.8 again a search in aptitude for package "gcc-6" failed.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
