    I don't think that is a bug of update-manager. Maybe something from your sources.list is corrupted.
    Open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and paste this command inside
    find /etc/apt/ -iname "*.list" -exec echo "FILE: {}" \; -exec cat "{}" \;
    Copy the entire out put and paste between [CODE] brackets by clicking on # at the top of the message pane.

    Also give these commands in terminal and see if problem fixed ,
    copy-paste them from here to your terminal one - at- time (do not write by hand) for better accuracy.
    sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
    sudo apt-get install -f
    sudo dpkg --configure -a 
    sudo apt-get update
    copy the entire out put of last command between [CODE] brackets by clicking on # at the top of the message pane.
