My Mint Update is broken [SOLVED]

Post by Temporary Saint »

I'm getting an error (see image) when trying to get update. How do I fix this?

I also get this error when executing apt-get update:
Reading package lists... Error!
W: GPG error: http://archive.ubuntu.com precise Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise_main_i18n_Translation-en
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Run the two commands in this post from the terminal, and that should fix the MergeList issue: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=198&t=114923#p638950
