Take a look at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=166758

The bottom line is you need to modify apt.conf. The syntax should be 

APT::Cache-Limit "4194304";

(from /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/configure-index.gz). This is the
current default, Jason Gunthorpe suggests changing it to 16777216 in
the bug report page above.

See /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/configure-index.gz and man apt.conf
