    What does it mean the "Ign" lines?

    It keeps saying that over and over with apt-get update, I never seen it before. But on etch/stable on 3 different systems I get this, whats wrong here????

    Ok, the "DiffIndex" IIRC means that it is pulling the differential indices for that repository...to see what has changed.

    and the "Ign"? Means ignore. It found something that negates it, so it is ignoring it, possibly due to the fact that there is an identical duplicate package listed in the repository listing.
