On apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade, get the output...
Preconfiguring packages ...
Setting up tar (1.15.1-2) ...
gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error
install-info(/usr/share/info/tar.info.gz): read gzip -cd
</usr/share/info/tar.info.gz |: 256

subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
