    Angry unable to install from software center

    I have installed ubuntu 11.04 and also installed few software from Ubuntu Software Center. I was installing Google-talk and i aborted the download in the middle. But after that, i am un able to install any other software from the center, when i choose any, it says to REPAIR google-talk. When i click on REPAIR it end up with error. And even i came up with a red icon in system try which has " Error;brokencout>o". I used command - "apt-get install --fix-broken" it downloads few packages but the error still sucks. How can i over come from these two

    Hi manojtm,
    Welcome to Ubuntu and sorry your having problems.

    I think this will fix it though
    go to a terminal and type the following commands one at a time:

    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf 
    sudo apt-get update
    then try your software center again.

    P.S. I would install synaptic package manager and use that.

    good Luck ,
    Dave
