I got AWstats from here http://awstats.sourceforge.net/
and I recieved no errors on the install.
Mabe I have some splinters left over from previous installs.
I ran apt-get update again and the error was gone.
Yet this morning it reappeared on the first apt-get update and on the second one it diappeared.
I also noticed that Suse Watcher has an update ready to be installed. I installed this on a previous server and it messed everything up by moving Awstats files and folders around
so i will not be doing this update again.
