apt reports incorrect Installed-size

ru flag

I downloaded viber.deb from the Viber site and I installed it on Xubuntu 22.04.1 LTS using

apt install "path/to/deb_file"

Although the installation was successful, whenever I type apt show viber, I get an incorrect Installed-Size: 518 GB report. Obviously neither the file nor the installation took that much disk space and the free space I see both on Thunar and whenever I use df -h is OK.

Why is apt giving this incorrect reading?

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
