Comment 7 for bug 940825

I'd like to retract my last statement, since apt-get update yields:

W: Failed to fetch http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise/universe/binary-i386/Packages 406 Not Acceptable [IP: 141.30.13.10 80]

then trying to fetch the same file from the same machine (again contacting 141.30.13.10) wget yields:

$ wget -nd http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise/universe/binary-i386/Packages

So it must be something within apt-get...
