Confirmed this is an issue in other repositories too. I downloaded the same .deb but for lucid/x86, with the same problem. When the .deb is downloaded manually, the md5/sha hashes are confirmed to differ from those stored in /var/lib/apt/lists. Deleting the file and re-running apt-get update does not fix the problem.

The work around was to manually install the downloaded package using sudo dpkg -i, and then to re-run sudo apt-get install scribus , to pull in the remaining dependencies.

Had a similar problem with the i386 package that appears to be fixed here : (which I can't add a comment too it so hence adding it here)

Not sure what the problem is but it looks like it is probably still affecting both 386 & 64 packages

P.S. a workaround that worked for me (worth a try with the amd64 packages I guess)

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys EEF818CF
gpg --armor --export EEF818CF | sudo apt-key add -


sudo dpkg -i libpodofo0.9.0_0.9.0-1_i386.deb

sudo apt-get install scribus
