I have never attempted to run apt-listbugs manually. It is typically
automatically invoked during the install/upgrade process and queried for
applicable bugs for the packages you are about to install/upgrade.
If there are indeed serious or grave bugs that apply to one of these packags,
you can choose to abort the installation altogether or pin selected packages
to the version you have installed.
While we are at it, another useful tool that is comparable to apt-listbugs is
apt-listchanges, which will bring important changes to your attention.
A quick look at the manpage reveals that you have to specify one of the
supported commands. Let's try "list":
$ apt-listbugs list apt/0.8.11.5
serious bugs of apt (0.8.11.5 -> 0.8.11.5) <unfixed>
