fixing E: Archive directory /var/cache/apt/archives/

During apt-get install of a package you might receive message :
E: Archive directory /var/cache/apt/archives/

to fix it you need to create a directory and repair deb packages database:

mkdir -p /var/cache/apt/archives/partial
apt-get autoclean


you should get response output similar to:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done


then feel free to install you package with apt-get or aptitude
