When trying to see the version of LXPanel and fire dpkg -l lxpanel, I get

~$ dpkg -l lxpanel
| Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name           Version      Architecture Description
ii  lxpanel        0.5.10+git20 i386         LXDE panel

Are there some errors that have to be solved?

No. Not about this package as far as the package management is concerned.


First dpkg -l does printing the package-name-pattern

dpkg -l package-name-pattern - List installed packages matching pattern. Practically speaking you have to use 'package-name-pattern' unless you know the fully exact name of the package.

you can get version name from dpkg -l also but That's not the usual way to get version of any package.Generally you can use -v or read its manpage for more information on how to get version name.

so for your case ,its lxpanel -v
