I removed /etc/cron.daily/apt, and did "aptitude reinstall apt"
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.
