your ubuntu 6.10 didn’t fetch apt-get update

One of my lab computer return an error result when I apt-get update,

Failed to fetch http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/edgy/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)

But when I checked to old-releases.ubuntu.com there’s nothing wrong with the Packages.gz. I can download it manually. Then I found a thread in ubuntu forum, it said that I have to delete any files in

/var/lib/apt/lists/partial

then run

sudo apt-get update

again.

And whala it is worked now.
