Packages.gz without lib dependencies: error when apt-get update


I made a deb-package-file *.deb with checkinstall, hence,
in my Packages file, there is nothing next to Depends:
Sooo, apt-get update gives me an error since he cannot see any depends, as shown below.
How to make it work without making again my debs ?
What would have been the easiest way to make my debs once : sh ./configure ; make ; make install ?

thank you very much !!

Packages file:
Architecture: i386
Version: 0.12.3
Filename: kopete blabla...
/etc/apt# apt-get update
Ign file: etch Release.gpg
Ign file: etchperso Release.gpg
Ign file: etch Release
Ign file: etchperso Release
Ign file: etch/contrib Packages
Ign file: etchperso/contrib Packages
Reading package lists... Error!
E: Problem parsing dependency Depends
E: Error occurred while processing kopete (NewVersion1)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/blabla ....

E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
