Bug Description

s-c 3.0.4

s-c attempts to install a pkg from the cache, rather than a deb file, when the filename of the deb file does not end with '.deb'.

Hi Vadim. This is just the case for deb files not ending with '.deb'. You can work around this by renaming the file such that it ends with '.deb'. Thanks for you help!
