[SOLVED]update error (Problem with MergeList)

Postby mbnoimi » Sat Feb 16, 2013 12:26 pm

Hi,

When I tried to update my system I got this error message:

Code: Select all

Reading package lists... Error!
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/mint-mirror.gwendallebihan.net_packages_dists_nadia_backport_i18n_Translation-en
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.


How can I fix this issue?

I'm using Min 14

You may try deleting the mergelists and downloading the packages index files anew. See two commands I share in this post on how to do that from the terminal: viewtopic.php?f=198&t=114923#p638950
