You haven't described your environment, but on my 10.0 system:

carl@linux:~> rpm -q --whatprovides
--> So, this package is included with SUSE 10.0

carl@linux:~> rpm -q --whatprovides
no package provides
--> ... whereas this package isn't.

A little Google research suggests that was distributed with SuSE
9.0 and 9.1. ** I also came across some postings where someone was getting
this error while trying to install apt4rpm, which is the server (to manage
and provide apt repository services) instead of just apt-get, the client

There /is/ an rpm you can download and install containing a script that looks
at your SUSE installation then downloads, installs and configures the apt
client for you, completely automatically. It's a great time-saver. Check out
this link:
