It could be a matter of looking for packages that aren't in a Packages
file with a correct checksum specified by an InRelease file signed by
one of the Debian Archive Signing keys (using files cached in
/var/lib/apt/lists).  If the cache is missing or there is something
wrong, could state that in the report instead.
