The fix for this is as follows:

$ sudo rm -f 

I imagine this is being worked on to fix, as was noted earlier today. 
If you encounter these problems, please enter this command, and try again.

In general, don't trust people who tell you to "sudo rm" anything  :) 
But this is an exception, as it's just a file that apt downloads for 
you.  The problem is that it's using your local copy, which is broken. 
If you delete your local copy, apt will get the new (and working) one, 
and everything should go fine.  If not, post the problem.
