Today I tried to DU and I get the following error messages:


      Quote:
W: Failed to fetch bzip2:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/cdn.debian.net_debian_dists_sid_main_binary-amd64_Packages Hash Sum mismatch

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.



aptosid 64 bit

Thank you
I had:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
I changed it to
deb http://cdn.debian.net/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
with same results and I had to change to
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
in order to DU
Regards
snvv

PS the strange thing is that I use cdn.debian.net in an other 64 bit box without problem Question

This happens then you run 'apt-get update' while the archive is updated (or the mirror) as some files are already up-to-date while others are still 'old'. So APT tries to verify the new Packages file with the hashsum of the old Packages file - which obviously fails and APT therefore refuses to use this file.

Waiting a bit will fix the 'problem'.

(APT refuses to use the file as it could be also a modified file either by an attacker on your connection or a compromised mirror or other funky attacks. So APT plays safe for your own protection - see 'man apt-secure'. But in reality its just a mirror which hasn't completely finished the update yet.)
