debmany: Fix error message upon non-existing package If debmany encountered an error after calling apt-get it tried to determine if apt-get works in general by checking if the same command succeeds for a well-known and always existing package. Unfortunately it used "apt-get" instead of "apt" for that test and hence always failed, because there never was a package called "apt-get". There always was just "apt" with regards to package names.
