  ok, now it's getting stranger as, after several hundred packages
that failed to update, the occasional package *is* updating -- for
instance, the eclipse packages.  then it goes back to generating
errors.  are those packages actually healthy?

  the update procedure finally self-destructs with (copied manually so
forgive any typoes):

...
     tmpepoch = hdr['epoch']
TypeError: string indices must be integers, not str

this happened right after failing to update totem-nautilus.
