It should be fixed now. 

Long story: A couple of days ago I made a mistake and erased the
original wxGTK packages from the repository. I reinstalled them but
apparently they are not exactly the same (the md5 checksum does not
match) and the apt server or client gets confused even though I
regenerated all the metadata for the repository. It has happened to me
once before, I think, and apt gets into a state which is very difficult
to fix. So I went ahead and rebuilt the packages with a release bump, it
is apparently the only easy way to fix this I know off. 

Sorry for the inconvenience.
