Updated apt packages support additional compression methods for index files

Publication date: 21 Nov 2014
Type: bugfix
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4

Description

The "synthesis.hdlist.cz" main package index files on Mageia mirrors
used to be compressed with gzip but recently started to use xz compression.

Since apt-rpm in Mageia was not prepared for this change, package index
files cannot be updated anymore, preventing users from installing updates
using apt-get.
