Subject: bug#231: apt-file constructs wrong url from /etc/apt/sources.list
From: Paul Wratt <>
Date: Wed, 8 Aug 2018 20:40:20 +1200

Package: apt-file
Version: 2.5.4

apt-file constructs wrong url from /etc/apt/sources.list

the bug should appear in any version in the Devuan repository

"apt-file" perl script I installed on Devuan 1 (jessie-stable-old?) (armhf)
it looks for "dir/Content-_arch_.gz" instead of "dir/binary-_arch_/Packages.gz"

use "apt-file -v update" to reproduce debug confirmation of issue
