This could mean you're trying to install packages built for OS2005. Do
the filenames end in _arm.deb (OS2005), or _armel.deb (OS2006)?

I don't think so.  I've never heard of this happening to anyone after

It has happened to me a couple of times: I'm supposedly online, but
every attempt to resolve a name gives me a "Network error".   Going
offline and back online helps.

It is correct.
