It looks like emacs does not properly handle package refreshes when the internet connection has been killed in the middle of an refresh.
I often get this message in that case and I can't call package until I actually kill emacs and restart it.
That's a bug which was almost certainly introduced in a6d87ea045 by
yours truly. Could you please file a new bug report by running M-x
report-emacs-bug or emailing address@hidden
? Please include a
reference to this thread.
Thanks in advance.
