It seems that your /var/lib/dpkg/status file is corrupt.  Perhaps if you
posted it somewhere online someone might hazard a guess as to what

Fortunately, dpkg keeps a backup in /var/lib/dpkg/status-old.  You can
cp it over the /var/lib/dpkg/status file and the application installer
shouldn't complain any more.

Did you get this error the first time you ran the app installer after
reflashing, or did you try to install some package and got the error
