That's immaterial, apt-setup is part of base-config.

apt-setup uses apt to generate that error message you see. In fact, it
simply looks at apt's returns code and standard error, and dumps the
standerd error output to you verbatim. I do not see how this can be a bug in
apt-setup. if you think it is, I would suggest you file a proper bug report,
with the apt sources.list entries that cause the problem.
