When I try to use update-manager I get this message:

An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

'E:Unable to parse package file /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_lucid_universe_ binary-i386_Packages (1), E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'

This came after my computer shut down in the middle updating to 10.04.

Have you fired up the 'terminal' and tried any 'sudo' magic?:p

sudo aptitude -f install
sudo dpkg --configure -a
Sorry to here of your drama.
