With the latest bioconductor/release_core docker, the apt system seems to be broken.
%docker run --rm -ti bioconductor/release_core bash
# apt-get update Get:1 http://deb.debian.org/debian testing InRelease [175 kB] ... E: Could not open file /var/lib/apt/lists/http.debian.net_debian_dists_sid_main_binary-amd64_Packages.diff_Index - open (2: No such file or directory)
trying to solve it:
#rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/* # apt-get update (this time no errors)
