[solved] Problem with Mint 14 update manager

Postby simonbrown on Thu Dec 27, 2012 7:52 am

I have had the same fault being reported by the Mint 14 update manager for some while now:

E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/packages.linuxmint.com_dists_nadia_main_i18n_Translation-en
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

Preferences are set level 1-3 visible and safe. All settings other than preference levels are unchanged from the nadia installation.

I do not profess to understand what is going on under the skin of update manager.

Where do I start ?

Thanks in advance

Simon

Seems you have the same problem as this member: viewtopic.php?f=198&t=114923#p638950. Suggest you try my solution there.
