The first thing to go wrong would be someone missing this out of
install-info /usr/share/info/wget.info /usr/share/info/dir
Type that yourself, and you should have an info page.
The older versions of wget are missing the INFO-DIR-ENTRY
from the info file. All info files should have something like
this near the start:
INFO-DIR-SECTION Net Utilities
INFO-DIR-SECTION World Wide Web
* Wget: (wget). The non-interactive network downloader.
If they do not, you can add it youself, or type:
install-info -e "* Wget: (wget). The non-interactive network downloader."\
-s "Net Utilities" /usr/share/info/wget.info /usr/share/info/dir
