Need help to install on Debian Wheezy

I've tried about everything I could think of plus scanned old topics. I followed procedure on page 8 (near bottom) of the WSPR_2.0_User.pdf Users Guide as shown here:

don@chiriqui:/$ sudo dpkg --instdir=. -i wspr_2.00r1714_i386.deb
dpkg: error processing wspr_2.00r1714_i386.deb (--install):
unable to open file '/var/lib/dpkg/': Is a directory
Errors were encountered while processing:

Looking at /var/lib/dpkg I see no .svn

Earlier, /usr/bin/python was pointing to version 2.7, but now it has been changed to 3.2

Running Debian Wheezy, up to date.

I should not, but I guess I need just a little hand holding on this. Any ideas?
