Bug#366788: apt: Refuses to accept older pre-existing package repositories that worked perfectly under immediate previous versions.

Package: apt
Version: 0.6.44
Severity: important


After upgrading to the newest version of Apt shown above, running "apt-get
update" results in the following error. 

Reading package lists... Error!
E: Unable to parse package file
/var/lib/apt/lists/_home_deb-i386_archive_official1_binary_Release (1)
E: Problem opening
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Downgrading to the immediate previous version of Apt available (
resolves this problem. Therefore, it must be a bug with the new version of
Apt. At present, I can't see any other reason why Apt would stop on these two archives.
