I have a WD My Book Live network drive (http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=280) on my LAN.
I can SSH on the network drive which seems to run Debian:
>> cat /etc/issue Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 \n \l
The first thing I tried is to check for updates, but it seems that there are errors preventing
apt from upgrading packages.
Here are some outputs of upgrade commands I ran:
>> apt-get update Hit http://ftp.us.debian.org squeeze Release.gpg Hit http://ftp.us.debian.org wheezy Release.gpg Hit http://ftp.us.debian.org squeeze Release Hit http://ftp.us.debian.org wheezy Release Ign http://ftp.us.debian.org squeeze/main Packages/DiffIndex Hit http://ftp.us.debian.org wheezy/main Packages/DiffIndex Hit http://ftp.us.debian.org squeeze/main Packages Reading package lists...

I cannot see how to get out of this loop, maybe the
apt package is broken and must be reinstalled manually, if so, how would I proceed to do it?
Thanks a lot for your help.
Edit: I dont know what's with the instant downvote, but if the question is obvious / poorly written / off-topic I'll be glad to improve it / take it elsewhere according to your comments.
