Yes, I can confirm that, having just downgraded to it first.
Normally if there are problems I get an email:
Subject: Anacron job 'cron.daily' on alum
Error(s) occured while updating volatile index files for apt-cacher-ng.
Please visit http://alum:3142/acng-report.html to rerun the
expiration manually or check the error message(s) in the current log file(s).
Please check error messages in one of: /var/log/apt-cacher-ng/maint_1441883138.log.html
Normally I look at the log file because I'm not seated at the machine.
Having just made a repeated attempt at expiration with the browser at
I noticed that each error 404 line here is followed by a checkbox for
tagging it, and there's a delete button at the bottom. Tagging and
deleting these files fixed it: 3 GB will be saved.
Thanks. Note to self—use the browser interface.
