This is definitely a bug. It means that apt-install failed. From the log it
looks like the problem is in the mirror "generator". What choices did you
I cannot reproduce this. Could you perhaps run the installation again with
a 'set -x' added in /usr/lib/apt-setup/generators/50mirror, and in
/usr/bin/apt-setup and /usr/bin/apt-setup-verify and send the syslog?
