Summary0002542: armhf apt repo's Packages.gz references non-existent package versions

It appears that the Packages list isn't being properly updated.

I'm trying to install kali-linux-top10 for armhf but it fails with this error (even after an apt-get update):

After this operation, 789 MB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
Err sana/main kali-linux armhf 1.67
404 Not Found
Err sana/main metasploit-common armhf 1.0.2-0kali0+b1
404 Not Found
Err sana/main metasploit-framework armhf 4.11.3-2015063001-1kali0+b1
404 Not Found
Err sana/main kali-linux-top10 armhf 1.67
404 Not Found
E: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found

E: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found

E: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

Steps To Reproduce

On armhf run:
apt-get update
apt-get install kali-linux-top10

Additional Information

Looking at it lists version 1.67 for kali-linux-top10 but that version doesn't exist.
In looking at the files here I don't see files for version 1.67, but do see them for 1.55.25, 2.41 and 3.1

From the other messages in the error output, it looks like kali-linux-top10 isn't the only package with the problem.

Ah yes, it does look like that mirror is out of date. The timestamp on the Packages file is July 4 of this year.

Thanks, I dropped the problematic mirrors from rotation until they can be fixed.
