Ah, I thought you were aware of what it was printing. It was printing
"Bus error" over the top of its normal output, which was presumably
something about "Package". Hence "Bus errorackage".

If everything works now then it seems quite likely that apt was
getting a bus error because of your filesystem(s) being full. That's
a pleasing outcome since now you don't have to test your memory,
power supply, etc etc!

If you can reproduce that i think it would be worth a bug report,
because it's really not nice to see "bus error".
