raceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/aptdaemon/", line 768, in simulate
    return self._simulate_helper(trans, status_path)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/aptdaemon/", line 851, in _simulate_helper
    size = int(deb["Installed-Size"]) * 1024
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: '213.161'

Sebastian Heinlein (glatzor) said :

The package that you want to install violates the Debian/Ubuntu policy. It is a bad practise. You should update your system. There should be a fix in maverick which ignoes such errors

Can you help with this problem?
