The wild guess is wrong.

I've now ground through all the files listed in the Packages.gz file.
The check sums match.  I did not get a mismatch.  (Script below.)
So, what does ``Packages.gz was corrupt'' mean?

Thank you.  - Bruce

#! /bin/bash

exec 2> LOG
set -x

egrep '^(Filename|MD5sum): ' Packages | \
while read file_key file && read sum_key sum
do test "$sum_key" = MD5sum: || { echo OOPS ; exit 1 ; }
   sum2=$(md5sum debian/${file} | awk '{print $1}')
   test ${sum} = ${sum2} || \
       printf '%s != %s for %s\n' ${sum} ${sum2} ${file}

P.S. I've followed this and other threads, too:
