In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 141:

At the end of section 5.3.2, I claim that dpkg does not report an error when asked to configure an already configured package. In fact, dpkg does report an error:

~# dpkg --configure postfix                                                                                                                                [300]
dpkg: error processing postfix (--configure):
package postfix is already installed and configured
Errors were encountered while processing:
postfix

Aric Campling, MozillaQuest: This book will have something new in store for all but the most advanced Debian users. While reading [it], I was surprised to find out how much I did not know about Debian GNU/Linux, the very operating system I use [...], especially about Debian's community orientation and about some powerful Debian tools that I never knew existed.
