Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I think this may be the result of some internet glitch.
Perhaps you should not have deleted that file
But sometimes the *.bin files in
/var/cache/apt/
become corrupted. Why - well....
The solution is to delete all *.bin files in that directory (which requires using sudo). After doing that, both Synaptic and apt-get should work fine
You may also have to run
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg --configure -a

This has nothing to do with "internet glitches" or the cache binary files that were mentioned, the problem lies within the file itself:

Nope - obviously not - I did not look inside the file
I have contacted the maintainer of that package and asked him to take a look
There are more questions about this arriving after my first answer

This is my fault and I intend to fix it as soon as possible! I notified Clem by e-mail as soon as the problem occurred early Saturday morning. In the meantime, here's how to fix it immediately:

1. As root, open the file /var/lib/apt/lists/www.linuxmint.com_repository_dists_daryna_community_binary-i386_Packages" with a Text editor.
2. Scroll down, and locate the information for 'Transmission' (my package contribution)
3. Delete the line "Depends:"
4. Save the file
5. Re-issue the command "sudo apt-get update"
This should solve the problem. Thanks! (Sorry for the hassle)

I'm removing the package from the repository in the meantime.
