To cut to the chase:
I have a problem with the updates...
For 2-3 weeks now, I cannot update my precise pangolin, neither with command line, update manager and even cannot open the synaptic manager.
The errors are with some headers of the packages.
In the Update manager, when I open it:
In Synaptic :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/packages.debian.org_librxtx-java_dists_precise_main_binary-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'
And in command line:E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/packages.debian.org_librxtx-java_dists_precise_main_binary-i386_Packages
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
I searched the forum and found that for many ppl, these 4 commands fixed the problem:W: GPG error: http://packages.debian.org precise InRelease: File /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/packages.debian.org_librxtx-java_dists_precise_InRelease doesn't start with a clearsigned message
W: Failed to fetch http://packages.debian.org/librxtx-j...ain/i18n/Index No Hash entry in Release file /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/packages.debian.org_librxtx-java_dists_precise_main_i18n_Index
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
But there was no success for me there...rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
I tried to change servers from which to download but no luck either...
And that`s when I turned here for help
I`m running a Lenovo G550 with Ubuntu 12.04 32bit if you need that information.
I would be very grateful if someone could help me out.
Forward thank you
Forgot to tell you that the problems are with the source list:
http://packages.debian.org/librxtx-java precise main
I figure that it is a essential update, but it does not work....
