The only cache cleaning that I know of is in base-config:

        if which tasksel >/dev/null 2>&1; then
                if [ "$1" = new ]; then
                if ! tasksel -ris $tasksel_param; then
                        $0 failure
                        exit 1

        if [ "$KEEP_BASE_DEBS" != yes ]; then
                apt-get -f clean || true

I don't see how this could cause the cache to be cleaned if the tasksel
run failed.
