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.

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.
