The problem here is that the version of doc-linux-text you have in .deb is
not exactly the same as the version of doc-linux-text that is described by
the package file - oddly they have exactly the same size. You should erase
those two .debs from /var/cache/apt/archives, re-download them and then
APT will stop complaining.

Someone is uploading different versions of the same package without
changing the version number - APT can detect this for most cases, but
can't tell that the .deb it has downloaded isn't the right .deb unless the
size differs as well.
