    Hmm.. Haven't heard of that before..

    Have you tried running this from a terminal?

    sudo ./PACKAGE.DEB

    Obviously you will have to direct your terminal to the folder where your .deb is located

    suck as:
    open terminal
    type: cd Downloads

    your are now in the downloads folder.

    type: sudo ./PACKAGE.deb

    you might also try to right click on the package --> proberties --> permission and make sure that the file is executable
