apt-get update failing
I have an slink machine trying to do an "apt-get update" via an
autofs-mounted nfs directory mirror of ftp.us.debian.org on a remote
machine. (Got that ? :) I'm getting the following error ...
fsmail:~# apt-get update
Get file:/amnt/mirrors/debian/debian-non-US/ unstable/non-US Packages
Get file:/amnt/mirrors/debian/ frozen/contrib Packages
Get file:/amnt/mirrors/debian/ frozen/main Packages

Updating package file cache...
E: Line 3 in package file
ges is too long.(2)
Kind of weird. This is the file in question ...
fsmail:~# ls -la
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1678480 Feb 3 21:21
And here's the first 10 lines ...
fsmail:~# head -10

Recommends: locales | wg15-locale, man-db (>= 2.3.10-37)
Suggests: tcs, kbd (>= 0.95) | console-utilities
I don't see anything amiss in the package file there, do you ?
