Bug Description

Using apt-file search for files known to be in repositories do not work - files are never found

apt-file search

(These can be confirmed with dpkg -S <filename> )

Investigating with apt-file purge && apt-file update lead me to this output:

Ignoring source without Contents File:

And the Contents file is indeed missing, not only from Julia but from all other releases. Browse and compare the repositories:



So, is it possible for Mint staff to generate these /dists/<release>/Contents-<arch>.gz files so apt-file search works again for our beloved mint packages?

(Mint 10 amd64 here, but from the links I assume all releases are affected...)
