mv error " file is not a directory" ?


This script part:
sudo find *.deb -mmin +10 | sudo xargs mv /var/cache/apt/archives/*.* /var/mobile/Library/iFile/Trash/var/cache/apt/archives/

Always returns :
" mv: test.deb is not a directory"

Any idea what I'm missing ?

Thanks in advance:

when "find *.deb ..." expand the wildcard '*'

a "test.deb" is found but this is not a directory, so "find" cannot perform the search in it
