Hi,

this message appears during updating using update manager.


A unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

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

'E:Problem parsing dependency Depends, E:Error occurred while processing btnx (NewVersion1), E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/repoubuntusoftware.info_dists_harty_all_binary-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'

It just happened today. There was no problem last week update. Need help.

Open up your /etc/apt/sources.list and change

deb http://repoubuntusoftware.info (http://repoubuntusoftware.info/) harty all
to

deb http://repoubuntusoftware.info (http://repoubuntusoftware.info/) hardy all
You can make these changes by opening a terminal and

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list make the change and save, then back in the terminal

sudo apt-get update

Hi this helped me too..

However after an apt-get update i noticed that this line also contained the 'harty' typo and was causing an error.

"deb http://repoubuntusoftware.info harty all"

This was one added by Ultamatix...

I suggest a find replace to make sure you get them all...

I am interested how they got there..

This solved the problem for me, also. Maybe ultamatix should be taken off the system until they get it figured out. Thanks a bunch for the solution. Bill:):)
