    David,
    Open a terminal and issue the following commands:

    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo apt-get purge

    These will remove the incorrectly downloaded package and reset your apt database. Now issue the following command to update your database:

    sudo apt-get update

    Lastly issue this command to upgrade all your packages:

    sudo apt-get upgrade

    Hope that helps!
    Cheers

    Sounds like you're accessing the packages via an NFS share? Have you tried rebooting the client?

    sorry - reboot your laptop. by client, i meant "NFS client" - assuming that your laptop is using an NFS server. I was just guessing at that, based upon the error you posted.

    It may be that the server needs to be rebooted. The apt repositories on the server might be NFS mounted. Are you using a local server?
