Error has occurred when I used apt-get update

Hi everybody,

does anybody know what it means? Look at the report below.

robin@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get update
Get: 1 dapper-security Release.gpg [189B]
Get: 2 dapper Release.gpg [189B]
Hit dapper-security Release
Get: 6 dapper/main Sources [336kB]
99% [6 Sources gzip 0]
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
Err dapper/main Sources
  Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)
Fetched 32B in 0s (37B/s)
Failed to fetch  Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)
Reading package lists... Done
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
How could I fix it. Thanx.

I got that same error only I got it while downloading the universe repositories listings. In general, the devs should fix it soon, and until then, it won't hurt your system.
