Thanks for the suggestions.  The offending packages are

faad, libfaad2-dev, libmp4v2, libmp4v2-dev

When I install them, I can read the names of all remaining installable
packages.  Of course, I can't read the list of installed applications then,
unless I switch to the short list.  BTW, it also helps to switch to
full-screen display.  Wouldn't you think that the program would have a
useful minimum column width if not user-adjustable columns?
