The program generating these files for appstream has crashed on some
input and left inconsistent output files which were then synced into the
archive.  See also [1].

However only tools using this data should be affected (appstream, GNOME
Software, no idea what else).  apt should still get updated packages as
usual as only the appstream metadata is affected, but not the Packages
list or other indices.
