Bug#176896: apt: Problems when deb and deb-src both present
This occurs when working with a repository generated by mini-dinstall.
I have these lines in sources.list:
deb http://local-packages/excel stable/
deb-src http://local-packages/excel stable/
The repository pointed to it valid. When I run apt-get update for the first
time after updating the repository with new packages, I get this error:
Hit http://local-packages stable/ Packages
Get:1 http://local-packages stable/ Release [706B]
Hit http://local-packages stable/ Sources
Get:2 http://local-packages stable/ Release [706B]
Fetched 1412B in 0s (17.2kB/s)
Failed to fetch http://local-packages/excel/stable/Release rename failed, No such file or directory (/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/local-packages_excel_stable_Release -> /var/lib/apt/lists/local-packages_excel_stable_Release).
Reading Package Lists... Done
For the second and subsequent invocations of apt-get update, I get no error.
All other apt-get commands work fine as well.
Also, if I comment out the deb-src line in my sources.list, apt-get works
fine with update every time. The problem only occurs when that line is
present. Alternatively, the problem goes away if I rm the Release file from
Checking my server logs shows that there was no error in fetching the file.
