Is unable to perform audit with dpk.

asu at marian1000:~$ dpkg --audit mc_3%3a4.8.15-2_amd64.deb
dpkg: error: --audit needs a valid package name but 'mc_3%3a4.8.15-2_amd64.deb'
is not: illegal package name in specifier 'mc_3%3a4.8.15-2_amd64.deb':
character '%' not allowed (only letters, digits and characters '-+._')

Type dpkg --help for help about installing and deinstalling packages [*];
Use 'apt' or 'aptitude' for user-friendly package management;
Type dpkg -Dhelp for a list of dpkg debug flag values;
Type dpkg --force-help for a list of forcing options;
Type dpkg-deb --help for help about manipulating *.deb files;

Options marked [*] produce a lot of output - pipe it through 'less' or 'more' !
