That bug indicates that the issue is closed and it is fixed. I
certainly isn't on my end. I ended up getting the firmware from the
torrent and I have been trying to install Canola2 for a day now and
contantly getting these errors still. As others have mentioned on  the
list, the problems seem to come from the repository server not sending
back a proper http error code but rather sends back some html with a
message which apt dutifully caches for the package transaction and the
result is installation brokenness.
