upgrade in Debian Lenny can't be done due to VirtualBox version

Here is the error I've got during GNU Debian Linux upgrade:


dpkg: ошибка разбора, файл `/var/lib/dpkg/available' около строки 31625 пакета 'virtualbox-3.1':

ошибка в строке Version `3.1.2-56127_Debian_lenny': invalid character in revision number

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)


It can be hotfixed by modyfing /var/lib/dpkg/available and /var/lib/dpkg/stat, just need to delete "_Debian_lenny" postfix in the lines dpkg stated.

VBox 3.1.2 != VBox 3.2.8 (version field of this ticket). The invalid version number was fixed in VBox 3.1.8, the latest release 3.2.8 has a fixed version number as well.
