That's an strange error message. Is this still happening? Could you try
the command line apt-get? Do first:
  apt-get update
and then
  apt-get install planetccrma-core
(for example)

You could try cleaning up the apt package caches with "apt-get clean"
but I doubt that's the problem. 

There could be a problem with some other caches apt-get keeps (or a
problem with a repository but I'm not seeing what you see here). You
could, for example, comment out _all_ repositories in your
configuration, then do an "apt-get update", then add the repositories
you need and do another "apt-get update".
