#StackBounty: #apt-mirror 18.04 local mirror missing some Translations-en

Bounty: 50

built a local mirror for 18.04 with apt-mirror 0.5.4-1. the mirror is on a usb drive, so sources.list uses file:. apt-get update on a new install of 18.04.1 results in eight missing Translation-en files.

Err:9 file:/media/reposB/ubuntu1804/mirror/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic/main Translation-en
  File not found - /media/reposB/ubuntu1804/mirror/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/bionic/main/i18n/Translation-en (2: No such file or directory)

Err:21 file:/media/reposB/ubuntu1804/mirror/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates/main Translation-en
  File not found - /media/reposB/ubuntu1804/mirror/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/bionic-updates/main/i18n/Translation-en (2: No such file or directory)

the eight missing are:


in each one of those directories, the Index file contained the sha1 sum for the missing -en file. so in each case, the Translation-en.gz file was uncompressed. the result sha1 matched what was in the Index. this step allowed the apt-get update to complete, with only a sandbox warning. packages could then be installed from the local mirror.

i’m at a complete loss to determine why these eight translation files are missing since they are included in the Index file. does anyone have a suggestion?
