Obvously, if it is only on my machine, but I did not know that.

OK. The question is where the problem is, since it is certainly consistent. I 
get complete listings in reportbug-ng.

Maybe related, maybe not, but see my "wishlist" item for apt-list 524768. This 
also relates to a fairly consistent problem hitting the same servers. (This 
had been filed as a regular bug a number of times. I did not reopen it.)
