Bug Description

The deb file code crashes for deb packages without a description like e.g. "error-package_1.0_1.0_all.deb" from the gdebi testsuite.

TEST CASE:
- a regression test to open a existing deb is enough as this is a rather uncommon situation

REGRESSION POTENTIAL: low, I can't think of how this could regress
