dpkg-query -l


I am trying to list all of the software installed on my knoppix v2.8. I am getting error

dpkg-query: parse error, in the file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 23112 package 'vimpart': EOF during the value of field 'Descripton' (missing final newline)

Please can someone tell me what this means as i am a newbie to knoppix

Thanks
