mint 15 software manager errors

Postby mint_values on Wed Oct 09, 2013 6:51 am

I type the password to open software manager and then...nothing. In the update manager I get this error:

Code: Select all
ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR
E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.canonical.com_ubuntu_dists_raring_partner_i18n_Translation-en, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.


The bit about not being parsed or opened is the same error I get when trying to get update and upgrade from the terminal.

If there is an existing thread which deals with this please direct me to it. Thanks.
