comment apt repository not showing in apt-cache policy, why?
@FaheemMitha - Yes, I did run apt-get update (in fact aptitude then u), otherwise the apt-cache policy pkgname would not have shown the package on its repository (I even cut'n'pasted the complete backlog from the terminal to have logs of this for myself). Will try the cache removal tomorrow.

@FaheemMitha: Doesn't look like it is making a difference. Currently I am even unable to reproduce this. (see second update). This IS confusing me.

Permission denied is strange for this, really. Make sure to have the read (for files) and read/execute (for directory) permissions on the files/dirs for group and other. See my chmod for the directory part.
