bpo DAK breakage? 375784 resurrected
today dselect update greeted me with:
Merging available information
Replacing available packages info, using /var/cache/apt/available.
dpkg: parse error, in file `/var/cache/apt/available' near line 12 package `aiccu':
too few values in file details field `Size' (compared to others)
update available list script returned error exit status 2.
Press <enter> to continue.
Which has the same cause as bug 375784 that is suposed to be fixed in
the DAK official suite:
