If it is a (broken?) transparent proxy in your ISP, it will continue to
happen until you figure out a way to get that proxy to _INVALIDATE_ its
cache at every request.  And you might have to request twice, if it is
broken enough to not invalidate the _current_ request.

Enable these options:


in apt.conf, if you haven't done so yet.  Mind the syntax for apt.conf.

There are many other options for Aquire::http that may help you debug the
issue.  Check here (old bugreport, but it might help you):

There is also a second possibility: a single slow-to-update mirror in a
round-robin alias is enough to cause such failures.  I am not sure all tools
are smart enough to retry with a different IP from the round-robin alias
when fetching indexes (if they're not, it is a bug).

Meanwhile, set your sources.list to a *specific* mirror to ease your
debugging.  And there are probably mirrors closer to you network-wise than
ftp.us.debian.org, you might want to check that too.
