Yes. I found out why it is not a "common bug". It happens whenever one answers
'scan' (as suggested in the infotext) to the questions where are the
"non_free", "non_US" and "local" packages. Whenever one answers 'none',
everything goes fine. In the first case though the script returns with an
error before finishing the "update" process and thus leaving the 'available'
file not accessible to the method.
