[vbox-dev] hash sum mismatch

Does the VirtualBox team silently replace the linux download package
without changing the version number?

We're trying to figure out why our deployed devices every once in a while
encounter problems when running "apt-get update".  This error causes
apt-get to exit with return code 100, and the rest of the update scripts
cannot continue to apply updates.  Here is what we're seeing:

sudo apt-get update
W: Failed to fetch
 Hash Sum mismatch
W: Failed to fetch
 Hash Sum mismatch

Every time it happens, it is always with VirtualBox, no other PPA or
package seems to ever causes this problem.
