apt-ftparchive error in sid, bug or feature?
Generating a local repository and using apt-ftparchive (apt-utils
0.6.44.1 in sid), produces an error:
E: DB format is invalid. If you upgraded from a older version of apt,
please remove and re-create the database.
Doing as it says produces the same error always.
Going to a sarge installation with apt-utils 0.5.28.6 and running the
very same script produces no errors.
I tested the repository by doing a sid install and everything is fine.
I find no bugs to this effect filed.
What is it, the unusable apt-ftparchive, bug or feature?
