Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

Start aptitude.

Select a package to install. The settings for Aptitude are as follows:

Show download progress in status bar
Do not auto-select recommends

Select a package to install. Press G to head to the preview screen.

Select some recommends to install. Press G to start downloading.

The status bar for download progress will show up and show correct information. All good.

After the download completes, a box will pop up, stating "Downloaded 0 bytes in [time] (0 b/s)" where [time] is correct, but the filesizes are not. You will see that the download size is 0.

Note: This is in Virtualbox, using the alternate CD of 12.04.1. This is probably too minor to be SRUd but it's still a small problem/papercut to me. Virtualbox uses NAT.

Another note: The download speed is properly shown in progress.

We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to review all reported bugs in a timely manner. You reported this bug some time ago and there have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time.

Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) reached end-of-life on April 28, 2017.

Do you still see a problem related to the one that you reported in a currently supported version of Ubuntu?

See this document for currently supported Ubuntu releases:

Please let us know if you do otherwise this bug report can be left to expire in approximately 60 days time.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.
