According to wiki, .pkg is the Mac OSX-specific package type. As little (again, according to wiki) is known about the format, it is not surprising dpkg cannot support it.

If there are other versions of the software you have, other than the .pkg file, you should probably pick the .deb file. That would be handled by dpkg.
