you mean file: repos, right ? What about http:// and ftp:// on localhost, 
Release aint copied again ?

#81829 and here is what Jason says:
Their are only 2 known cases where this happens:
   1) Your libc/libstdc++ is screwed
   2) Your system has corrupted the data in /var/cache/apt/*.bin

In #1 you have to fix it, in #2 it usually fixes itself next 'update', but
if that is not the case 'rm /var/cache/apt/*.bin' always fixes it.
Nobody has been able to show that these are actual APT bugs, the reason I
have not closed the reports is because I would like it to handle #2 more
elegantly and make a better error message.

another break could be in linkage of libstdc++ and apt compiled with different 
g++ (2.9.x, 3.x) having different ABI's ?
