Not sure what causes this, as I cannot replicate on every system, but if you face this error, there is a work around that worked all times.

The solution
Must be issued as root, sudo won't do it.

For systems with sudoers NOPASSWD flag (sudo don't ask for password):
sudo su
Than issue this:
echo 'apt::sandbox::seccomp "false";' > /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/999seccomp

Proceed to normal use of apt-get or aptus
