I do not see such a line in Squeeze or Sid.  What version of apt do
you have installed?

  hi Bob,
  it's difficult for me to understand this mess;
  I am on Squeeze. apt version is
   here is my source.list
   deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
   deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
   deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main contrib non-free
   deb-src http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main contrib non-free
   deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main contrib non-free
   deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org squeeze main non-free
   deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian squeeze contrib
   deb http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free
   deb http://deb.playonlinux.com/ squeeze main

   I removed /etc/cron.daily/apt, and did "aptitude reinstall apt"
   After that:
      1/ the cron file is not installed, although it is listed in "dpkg -L apt"
         the dpkg man says:
               -L, --listfiles package-name...
                  List files installed to your system from package-name.
         a lot of files listed by "dpkg -L apt" are not actually installed.

      2/ net-update  is shown in apt-key --help, but not in the man.

   using "apt-get --reinstall install apt" gives the same result.

   I have also exactly the  problems on my laptop.
