I am using debmirror in such a way:

debmirror --nosource -v --nocleanup --getcontents --ignore-missing-release --ignore-small-error --root=/ --method=http --progress --dist=hardy,intrepid,jaunty --section=partner --arch=amd64,i386 --ignore-release-gpg ubuntu/

An error appear after upgrade to ubuntu 9.04:

Missing: .temp/dists/jaunty/partner/binary-i386/Packages
bzip2 -d <.temp/dists/jaunty/partner/binary-i386/Packages.bz2 >.temp/dists/jaunty/partner/binary-i386/Packages
sh: cannot open .temp/dists/jaunty/partner/binary-i386/Packages.bz2: No such file
Failed: bzip2 -d <.temp/dists/jaunty/partner/binary-i386/Packages.bz2 >.temp/dists/jaunty/partner/binary-i386/Packages
WARNING: releasing 1 pending lock...

Similar error is reported here

I solved the error by installing the previous version of debmirror (by extracting script file from an older .deb file)
Is this an error in the script or in the repository?

Thank you for your attention.
