Code: Select all
apt policy libreoffice                                   
libreoffice:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1:5.2.7-1+deb9u2
  Version table:
     1:5.2.7-1+deb9u2 500
        500 http://security.debian.org stretch/updates/main amd64 Packages
     1:5.2.7-1 500
        500 http://ftp.ca.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages

$ dpkg -V libreoffice                                       
dpkg: package 'libreoffice' is not installed



So 'apt policy' gets it right. Anyway thanks for the list of possibilities for examining package states above.

If you look at it that way. It seems uncharitable tho, since every other uninstalled package is reported as uninstalled, and in this one case it is not. It is the *exception* that bothers me even if you could say that aptitude why isn't really interested. Perhaps it gets off on the technicality tho.
