Display all packages with names that match a specified pattern.

Explanation
The dpkg command installs Debian packages on Debian distributions. The dpkg -I (lowercase L) displays all packages with names that match a specified pattern. Be aware of the other following options:

##MARGINS=16,8,O,O##- -i installs a package.
##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -I lists information about packages that are not installed. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -L shows the installed files for a package. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- --configure reconfigures an unpacked package. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -r removes the package but does not delete the configuration files. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -P completely uninstall the package including the configuration files. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -p lists information about a currently installed Debian package. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -5 finds a package associated with specified files.
##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -C searches for packages that have been installed only partially on the system. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- B disables packages that have dependencies on the package being removed. ##MARGINS= 16,0,0,0##- --ignore-depends ignores dependency-checking for specified packages. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -no-act prevents changes from being written.
##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -G prevents a package from being installed if a newer version of the package already exists on the computer.
##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -E does not install the package if the same version of the package is already installed. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -R installs the package recursively.
