答复: Stunned by aptitude.
I don't think so. Obviously, if the network is broken, it absolutely does
not mean that there is NO packages, just aptitude can not know. This gives
it no right to erease all information stored locally.
It is like, if my mobile was broken today, my wife could not contact with
me, so she should think that I DIE? And call the cops, and throw out all my
staff? It is not right, Mr.

It is doing error handling: If it can't reach that server, there's no point
in considering it a valid source. If you have no valid sources, there's no
current packages. It's working as designed.
