Hi. Recently I updated my system using Synaptic. Now I'm getting this error when I try to re-install sun-java6-bin package: W: Failed to fetch http://apt.harleystudio.co.za/pool/sun-java6-bin_6-07-3_amd64.deb Size mismatch At first it was installed, but I uninstalled it because of the error. Now I can' t get it to re-install. Any ideas on how to solve this? Thanks.

Thanks. That did it. Had to

Thanks. That did it. Had to reinstall sun-java-jre from debian backports too, but problem solved.
