I'm sorry, but I am not seeing anything that edifies me. Pressing SPC does take me through the function, but the edebug instrumentation ends at the end of defun without showing me anything that I could share.

But, there is something else that may be helpful:

The source code I am directed to is


Does it not appear that I am executing an override function perhaps from an older version of the helps-fns+ package?

Before I look for an upgrade, I wanted all concerned to read this in case you have other analysis in mind.

Noam, I am not familiar with edebug.

Can you give me some more code examples?
Basically just put point on the source code of describe-package, and hit
C-u C-M-x, that will instrument the function.  Then run
package-menu-describe-package with "?" or however, and you will stop in
describe-package.  Press space to step through each expression.

Hmm, very strange.  Could you step through describe-package with edebug,
and see how this condition is getting taken, even though package-desc-p
should apparently be returning t?

    (if (not (or (package-desc-p package) (and package (symbolp package))))
        (message "No package specified")
