Package update error

Ok so I woke up this morning and before I got started on what I had to do for the day I thought I'd make sure my system was up to date. Here's what happened.

: > sudo apt-get update

E: Method rred has died unexpectedly!                                          
E: Sub-process rred received a segmentation fault.

Here is my /etc/apt/sources.list

## Compatible with Debian Wheezy, but use at your own risk.
deb waldorf main
#deb-src waldorf main

deb wheezy main contrib non-free
#deb-src wheezy main contrib non-free

deb wheezy/updates main
#deb-src wheezy/updates main

Any ideas what caused the error?

edit: While it is implied as I posted here I should mention I am running Waldorf.

edit: I may have posted this too quickly as I just ran it again and this time it completed without error.

Re: Package update error

I had that same thing happen yesterday. Now my Evolution and zsnes will not work. Evolution throws a segmentation fault at me and zsnes bitches about not being able to set the video mode when it had no issue before my dist-upgrade.

Re: Package update error

I see those once in a while along with issues not connecting to a language diff (or something similar)

I usually wait a minute or three and the issue goes away...
