i have this problem on linux mint, i already posted it on the LM forums but i didn't get any responses.
i am stuck with the same error every time i want to apt-get install something or install a .deb file.
i have found people with the same issue but the solution didn't work for me.
this is what happens when i want to install a .deb file
Software index is broken
This is a major failure of your software management system. Please check for broken packages with synaptic, check the file permissions and correctness of the file '/etc/apt/sources.list' and reload the software information with: 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo apt-get install -f'
and this when i want to apt-get something
does anybody have a solution to this?
