These errors were related to temporary files on the remote server that
are unimportant on the local mirror. They should not have caused a
problem for you.

If you have switched your apt sources away from lug.bu.edu, I'm
comfortable giving the go-ahead to switch them back. I've made a change
in how I sync to the upstream mirror that will exclude the temp files,
but that shouldn't affect users of the mirror.

I'll let you know if I figure anything out, but I doubt the problem was
mirror-related at this point. I don't have any Ubuntu systems with which
to test, though, so if I hear anything else I'll be sure to get back in
