That made me look for a file with that name in the whole hierarchy, and
I found it at

/var/cache/apt-cacher-ng/_xstore/rsnap/debrep/dists/unstable/45961554550630227606591

I removed the file and it started complaining about other similar files.
After deleting a couple, the logs became even more unhelpful:
