View Full Version : [ubuntu] Software Center error

June 12th, 2011, 08:58 PM

I was trying to install WINE to support iTunes on Ubuntu. I tried to search for it in USC, but it did not show me anything. I tried to remove USC but this is the message I got,

sudo apt-get remove software-center
Reading package lists... Error!
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_bina ry-i386_Packages
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Can anyone tell me what's going on?

Thank you

Open a terminal and copy & paste the following:

sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf

sudo apt-get update
