Debian Sarge 3.1 install errors

I just downloaded, ran it as root, and after a whole bunch of Get: lines, I got this:

Fetched 52.6MB in 1m25s (618kB/s) Failed to fetch Size mismatch Failed to fetch Size mismatch E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

FATAL - Fatal Error Occurred: Installation failed: 100 FATAL - Cannot continue installation. FATAL - Attempting to remove virtualmin repository configuration, so the installation can be FATAL - re-attempted after any problems have been resolved. FATAL - Removing temporary directory and files. FATAL - If you are unsure of what went wrong, you may wish to review the log FATAL - in /root/virtualmin-install.log.

apt-get update doesn't update anything. Do I need to add any special apt sources?

I re-ran the install and got further this time, but at the end:

Error: Failed to open /etc/webmin/virtual-server/config for writing : Bad file descriptor
Failed to open /etc/webmin/virtual-server/config for writing : Bad file descriptor

INFO - Installation of virtualmin-base completed.INFO - If you are not regularly updating your system nightly using apt-getINFO - we strongly recommend you update now, using the following commands:INFO - apt-get updateINFO - apt-get upgrade

Is this bad?

Hey Daniel,

Ok, so the first problem is a stupid mistake on my part in the software repositories (I rolled out "new" versions of a couple of modules with old versions). That's now been fixed, by rolling out the actual new modules with correct versions. Thanks for the head's up on that one.
