We have 2 (of out many) machines that will not do a apt-get update
properly (since the 4.0 upgrade a couple days ago). These 2 machine are
old but have working just fine. The message I get on both of these
Get:5 http://security.debian.org etch/updates/main Sources [56.5kB] 99% [5 Sources gzip 0]
[Waiting for headers] gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
Err http://security.debian.org etch/updates/main Sources Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)
Failed to fetch
http://security.debian.org/dists/etch/updates/main/source/Sources.gz Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)
I change the IP address for security.debian.org to see if that would make
a change - no change.
I did a lynx on this file: "lynx http://security.debian.org/dists/etch/updates/main/source/Sources.gz"
and it worked just fine and was able to un-archive it as well.
The gzip program is the same version as on the other machines that work.
Not sure which direction to go now, anyone have an idea?
