Is there a way I can rebuild /var/cache/apt/archives for Apt

I want to use AptonCD but my /var/cache/apt/archives folder has a blank lock file, and a folder called partial that's empty.

Be happy that your partial folder is empty, if not you'd have some failed download....
There is no need for a lockfile for the apt cache - unlock (remove the lockfile - be careful)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
