pkgin update downloads pkg_summary.bz2 and then complains and says:

short read of pkg_summary truncated bzip2 input

and the update fails.

If I wget the file:

$ wget

and manually bunzip2, it comes back with an error.

If I wget the .gz file, it unpacks ok. So there seems to be a corrupt pkg_summary.bz2m on the repo.

Have marked as 'serious' because it prevents upgrade and installation.
Download and try to unpack pkg_summary.bz2 for NetBSD 9.1 earmv6hf
Someone please put an uncorrupted bz2 file on the server(s). 

Just converting the gz to bz2 should work
