I was afk when this crash occurred.

Fresh 2 day upgrade to Beta 9.10
Am experiencing other problems with this distro:

-unable to boot latest kernel 2.6.31-14-generic (unable to mount local filesystem)
-current kernel reports same mounting error but does boot, 2.6.28-16-generic.
-avira antivirus randomly starts or doesn't start at boot
-video effects not working properly, outer edge of desktop flashes instead

It occured during startup.

Like for me. It crashed at startup, when I saw Gnome screen.

This is a bug in python-apt, reassigning.

This is a bug in apt-xapian-index which does not handle the error from Apt and crashes. It seems that the cache file is defect, though.

affects: python-apt (Ubuntu) → apt-xapian-index (Ubuntu)

Got the same error today when it told me that file us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_maverick_universe_binary-i386_Packages us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_maverick_universe_binary-i386_Packages is corrupt.

Removing the cache and redownloading package info resolved the problem.
