Debian lenny: texlive-latex-base, W: invalid date


Recently, I changed timezone data and latex, so I must have screwed up something.

Problem is,
# aptitude reinstall texlive-latex-base

It could be because your network is down, or because of broken proxy servers, or the BTS server itself is down. Check network configuration and try again
Retry downloading bug information?[Y/n]?
I have done "aptitude update" and many other packages can be reinstalled. System is Debian lenny.

What am I supposed to do next?

Happy Penguins!

========added on edit.
I checked on my other lenny. Same message shows up.
