Default Aptitude Abnormality

Hi, All
Minor problem... I thinks 8-)
Just noted an error/warning during an install, as follows:
"database /var/lib/apt/listchanges.db failed to load"
Install completed OK.


My Sys_Info: Debian "Lenny"
Linux Speeduke 2.6.24-1-amd64 #1 SMP Thu Mar 27 16:52:38 UTC 2008
x86_64 GNU/Linux

What does it mean? Besides the obvious..--
Is it serious?
How do I fix?
What's needed?

Thanks, Jack

It looks like a non-fatal warning from apt-listchanges.

What's apt-listchanges do when you install something, or does this
happen on every install?

Can't help there, sorry. Does /var/lib/apt/listchanges.db exist?

jack@Speeduke:~$ du -h /var/lib/apt/listchanges.db
12K /var/lib/apt/listchanges.db

So the file seems to be there...
