how could Packages mention files that don't exist yet?

How do the mirrors work?  Are the Packages files always copied last,
to ensure all the versions mentioned in them already exist on the disk
when you try to get them?

In what cases could an hours old Packages file mention packages that
apparently haven't been copied to the mirror yet? E.g.
ERROR 404: Not Found.
Plenty of space there:
$ df
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hdc1            118729904 103213752  14309912  88% /home/ftp
/dev/hdd1            118729904 104041660  13482004  89% /home/ftp/pub
