A much handier method in my view would be:

aptitude search wicd

which would show:

i   python-wicd                            - wired and wireless network manager - Python modul
i   wicd                                   - wired and wireless network manager - metapackage 
p   wicd-cli                               - wired and wireless network manager - scriptable c
v   wicd-client                            -                                                  
p   wicd-curses                            - wired and wireless network manager - Curses clien
i   wicd-daemon                            - wired and wireless network manager - daemon      
i   wicd-gtk                               - wired and wireless network manager - GTK+ client 


The "i" means installed
