Update Manager fails to run

Postby Chris621 » Sun Jan 06, 2013 11:24 am

Hi,

I have just tried to run Update Manager to do a routine update of my Mint 14 system but it gives an error message and will not run. The error message is as follows:

Code: Select all

E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/packages.medibuntu.org_dists_quantal_non-free_i18n_Translation-en
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.


How can I renew the package lists?
