Here is my sources.list. I've cleaned out comment lines:
deb http://ftp.br.debian.org/debian/ woody main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.teleglobe.net/non-US/ woody/non-US main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org woody/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
deb file:/storage/ debs/
The last line refers to my separate "storage" partition on which there
is: /storage/debs. Here I put I put .deb files and the Packages.gz I
build from them.
I assume you want me to unpack Packages.gz to inspect its
innards. Here is the first block:

Maybe you can see something amiss here.
