    Debian Bug     : 977000
    
    The update for python-apt released as DSA 4809-1 introduced a regression
    when passing a file descriptor to apt_inst.ArFile or apt_inst.DebFile
    causing a segmentation fault. Updated python-apt packages are now
    available to correct this issue.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.8.4.3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-apt packages.
