    Unhappy update manger error ??

    when i run my update manger i got this :

    Could not initialize the package information

    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:Encountered a section with no Package: header, Eroblem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/sa.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_jaunty_restrict ed_binary-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'

    it happans to my Add/remove manger and anything else got to to do with ubuntu date base i think !


    i tried sudo apt-get update and it tells me :
