    Problem with update manager

    Hello there!
    I've got a problem with the update manager, which doesn't open.
    When I try to launch it the following error show up:

    Code:
    E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_quantal_main_i18n_Translation-en, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
    Can anybody give me a little help with that?
    Thanks

    Update-manager is not the best piece of cake; use synaptic instead, or apt-get

    sudo apt-get install synaptic
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    The first one gives me this:

    Lettura elenco dei pacchetti... ErroreE: Encountered a section with no Package: header
    E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_quantal_main_i18n_ Translation-en
    E: L'elenco dei pacchetti o il file di stato non può essere letto o aperto.

    I'm sorry for the language, it's italian.
    I hope it doesn't create any problem!

    Try from a terminal
    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
    then run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    to reload the list files.

    Good Luck
