In a new installed system with Debian 9.6
$ dpkg -l
will list only packages with 'ii' state and a couple of 'rc'.
But if i run:
$ dpkg -l w*
i will get a dozen also of 'un' packages.
So i dont understand the logic of altering the output when
i use a pattern . I would expect to see only 'ii' packages starting
from the letter 'w' .
Also i dont understand why in a new system dpkg would know
anything about uninstalled packages!
