update manager error

Postby prgary » Mon Jan 21, 2013 5:38 pm

The update manager gives me the following error:

E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/packages.linuxmint.com_dists_nadia_import_i18n_Translation-en
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

Linux Mint 14 - Cinnamon on a HP 4530S notebook.

Thanks for any hints!
