Public bug reported:

Trying to install .deb for Brother ADS-2200 scanner. Worked previously
in 18.04, 18.10, 19.04 and 19.10.

If I double click on the .deb, Gnome Software attempts to install and
fails with the following error:

Failed to install file: not supported

If I use apt to install the file manually I get the following error:

sudo apt install ./brscanads2200ads2700w-0.1.15-1.amd64.deb
Reading package lists... Error!
E: Problem parsing Provides line of brscanads2200ads2700w:amd64=0.1.15-1
E: Error occurred while processing brscanads2200ads2700w (NewVersion2)
E: Problem with MergeList 
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

I installed using dpkg without any errors.
