The only way is to make sure the whole set of indices doesn't change
between fetches by apt. This means some complication in apt, the
repository and mirror scripts. Besides, what should be done if apt
finds that the mirror is updating? What does it tell the user? This
seems the worst part to me.

The reasonable thing to do, IMHO, is for apt to try again a few seconds later and only error out if it wasn't a very short-term temporary problem.
