I have "inherited" my wifes old laptop and installed Cassandra on it.
When I start Update manager I get an error and I can read as a tool tip the following:
An error occured, please run Package Manager from the right click menu or apt-get on a terminal to see what is wrong. The error message was: 'Error opening the cache:(
E: Read error - read (5 input/output error)
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.) '
From a terminal:
bettan@bettan-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get check
Reading package lists... Error!
E: Read error - read (5 Input/output error)
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
The same for apt-get autoclean and autoremove while just clean does not give any message
And this is also odd:
bettan@bettan-laptop:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Bus error (core dumped)
I'll make a new install, beta 014 worked ok so this is something I've bumped into
Just posting to see if someone knows anything about this, another time it may be a crisis with such an error.
