Unless my logic is askew, this means that the problem is not the file size or
type, nor the repository, nor any problem with the integrity
or "downloadability" (TM!) of the files. AFAICT, that only leaves apt-get
itself as the culprit. Would this be correct?
But what could be wrong with apt-get such that it fails to deal with two
particular list files only?
Maybe I should purge and reinstall apt, but is this possible? Seems risky!
(I've already tried apt-get install --reinstall and dpkg-reconfigure.)
# aptitude update
Another thought - it might be worth checking that there is enough free
space on the partition.
