Description

Package : apt Version : 0.8.10.3+squeeze7 Debian Bug : 710924

The recent security updates to apt make apt bug #710924 [1] much easier to trigger. Affected users see "416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable" errors during a apt-get update operation. With the 0.8.10.3+squeeze7 upload the fix for this error that was originally introduced in version 0.9.12 [2] is now backported.

Cheers, Michael
