Looks to me like something - possibly a transparent proxy server at your
ISP? - is being 'helpful' and deflating the .gz file on the fly for you.
Having saved 'Packages.gz.1', what do you get if you run 'file' on it,
or 'gzip -tv'?  Is it still a gzip file?

If something is messing with your http transfers, try changing your apt
sources.list to use ftp instead, and see if the problems go away.
