Indeed some are virtual or pure virtual (although i dont know the diff)

But also there are packages like 'ergo' which look normal
and the only relation i think found (reason to display it) is because
libstd++6 depends on it.

Also listed packages like 'wink' not in the repos any more.

dpkg -l may show packages which are not installed but are mentionned in installed packages dependencies (Recommends, Suggests, Conflicts...) or were installed and removed but not purged (leaving config files).
