Bug#37010: libc6-pic: libc6-pic is not installable due to invalid deb format
libc6-pic is broken in the ftp archive. I don't know if the problem is
at the source or in the downstream handling of the package but I get:
Unpacking replacement libc6-pic ...
gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
dpkg-deb: subprocess gzip -dc returned error exit status 1
dpkg: error processing /local/linux/debian/dists/unstable/main/binary-i386/devel
subprocess dpkg-deb --fsys-tarfile (EOF) returned error exit status 2
in dselect script file. You'll notice this is from a local mirror.
I tried deleting it and resyncing the mirror to get another copy.
This error is from the newly acquired copy so I don't think the problem
is here. I'm mirroring from ftp.eecs.umich.edu which seems to be a good
