The apt cache is on an NFS mount.  I moved the files on the NFS server
earlier, using "mv this /there/", across mountpoints on the server
filesystem, which updated all the mtimes.  Apparently apt uses mtime
to check if /var/lib/apt/lists/* files are up-to-date.  The security
Packages is dated 2010-12-01 on the repository.

"rm /var/lib/apt/lists/security.debian.org_*_main_*_Packages" plus
"apt-get update" fixes it.
