Notice: apt 2.3.y (next cycle) to refuse downloading packages without a Size field

Hi all,

the discussion in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt/+bug/1921626
showed us that some repositories have no Size field for their packages,
including all repositoires generated by pulp.

This is not a tested configuration, as we can see from the bug ;)

I'll be fixing this bug in both stable branches and master branch, but
there will be a
- warning for such Packages in 2.2.y (bullseye/hirsute)
- error in master (next release cycles)

I give this heads up notice, as the period between warning and error
will be relatively short for users for development series, happening
directly after the bullseye and hirsute releases, respectively,
