Not certain why running

 apt update -o Acquire::http::AllowRedirect=false

before updating apt updating itself is inoperative in your case.

For me, unfortunately, the camel has just now arrived with the news, and
I installed the update that addressed this vulnerability yesterday in
the usual manner (apt update; etc...).

Maybe I've been pwned.
