I like to code and I do it a lot. I want to build software to save the planet.

If you use Bazaar, you might be interested in my book Bazaar Version Control. If you work a lot in the shell, you might be interested in my Time-Saving Tricks on the Command Line.

I make free Android apps like Programming Quiz, websites like bashoneliners.com, and other open source stuff.

You can find me on Twitter as @janosgyerik or on my blog.

Can root access that file? Maybe the file is in your encrypted home directory?

Did you really run that command? Just because you're root, that doesn't necessarily mean you can access. For example the home directory could be encrypted. Run that command. If that works, then the only thing I can think of is that there must be some tiny detail we're missing

And when you are root, can you read the content of that file? For example with sudo head /path/to/file ?

Do you run the script with a different user? If the script runs as a different user, it's possible that the user doesn't have permission to the containing directory, causing the test to fail.

The same thing, slightly more compact and robust: dpkg -l | awk '/^rc/ { print $2 }'
