In response to a similar question about APT problems on the UK Ubuntu
mailing list, I recently posted this, which did apparently sort things
out for that person...

In case of minor APT problems, the first things I do are a clean
followed by purging the cache. This means:

apt-get clean
apt-get autoclean

If that doesn't help then I also nuke the APT package cache, which is
in /var/cache/apt/archives .
