Someone forgot to do "apt-get update;apt-get upgrade" after 51.1 got released.

Simple 'apt-get update/upgrade' will give dpkg 1.14.25 in any Fremantle SDK. I 
upgraded that way from version released by Nokia before N900 got into sales to 
42.11 and then to 51.1 release. 

I do not care if someone at nokia say "but you should reinstall sbox each time 
when we release new version" because this sounds like pure bullshit for me. 
Never mind how badly nokia Maemo team broke Debian which was used as base long 
time ago methods from it should work.
