i've updated dpkg-ftp to 1.4.3 and now i can't seem to download any
more files. this is a typical output of what i get (tried it with a
few different packages):
Processing Package files...
Constructing list of files to get...
want: unstable/binary-i386/admin/lshell_2.01-3.deb (9k)
Approximate total space required: 9k
Available space in : 120805

Do you want to download the required files [y]:

Connecting to sun10.sep.bnl.gov...
Login as anonymous...
Setting transfer mode to binary...
Cd to /pub/Linux/debian...
Processing downloaded files...(for corrupt/old/partial)
Can't stat : No such file or directory
i've even downloaded the file and put it by hand in
/var/lib/dpkg/methods/ftp/debian/unstable/binary-i386/x11/ but to no
avail. if i try to retrieve the file a second time dpkg-ftp won't even
try thinking it already has it. what do i do now other that going back
to 1.4.2. thanks.
