The ubuntu repositories dists folder contains both Packages, Packages.gz and Packages.bz2 files. Out of these, apt-get uses one of them during an update. Where can I configure apt to choose a particular compression type file instead of others.
I am in a university using an internal mirror and for some reason one of the files is giving a
Hash mismatch error. I think if I use bz2 instead of gzip, perhaps I can get past the erroneous file. My
apt-get update always tries to fetch .gz files and fails on one of them.
