comment Which installed software packages use the most disk space on Debian?
I see this too on my ubuntu box (dpkg 1.18.2). I'm not clear why it seems to happen on some systems but not others, however ` dpkg --list |grep "^rc" | cut -d " " -f 3 | xargs sudo dpkg --purge` will purge all removed packages and fix it.

@Calimo As far as I can tell when I run the query on my systems it is only showing installed packages, this is with dpkg version 1.16.16. (eg. this system has had multiple linux-image-* packages installed on it, and the dpkg-query only lists two tiny meta packages plus the two kernels that are actually installed currently, and no others) I am not sure why you might be seeing something different.
