Helge Kreutzmann <debian@helgefjell.de> (2014-10-14):
> Boot method: CD
> Image version: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/weekly-builds/amd64/iso-cd/, build date October 6th
> Date: <Date and time of the install>
> Machine: Lenovo Thinkpad G50
> Partitions: <df -Tl will do; the raw partition table is preferred>

This is quite certainly #765458.

This might be the same issue, I'll try to test this setup if I manage to
debug apt further.

I'd suggest tracking this issue separately.

Many thanks for the detailed report.
