    Question index files are broken LM14

    Hello,
    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
    Code:
    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
    Code:
    henry@henry-pc ~ $ apt-get install fortune-mod Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: The package wps-office needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
    does anybody have a solution to this?
    thanks in advance
