    Problems while Installing Intel Graphics Pack

    I'm new to the whole Linux OS scene. I chose to run Ubuntu 13.04, at least thats what I recall. The whole purpose of me partitioning my hard drive was to migrate all my games onto Ubuntu, so Window's stops running so hard. So step one, is done. I installed playonlinux along with Wine to start installing my main game, Rift. All that was a success after some minor glitches that I researched and figured out on my own, eventually. I finally go to play my game, the loading screen and videos flash obscenely, but I've read that that was expected, so thats fine with me. So when I finally log in to my character/account I recieved nothing other than disappointment after my days of figuring it all out. I'm staring at a black screen with only the GUI appearing on screen.

    So I told a techy friend of mine what happened, and he suggested that it was something to do with the graphics. He sends me a link to install the Intel(R) Graphics Installation Pack. This is where all my problems started. I go to install it and I got some errors and failed to download yada yada. Along with this process I removed playonlinux and wine because the errors said something about them... That removed two of the errors. So I searched it all up and tried a solution I thought would work. I posted the gist of it in another thread.

    E: Unable to lock the download directory

    So I browsed around online, came across another forum post that solved my issue. So I thought I'd share it on this thread, to save others encountering the same problem having to search for more answers.
    I found out that running this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoclean
    In a fresh terminal, seemed to solve my issues to be able to run:
    Code:
    sudo -i
    apt-get clean
    cd /var/lib/apt
    mv lists lists.old
    mkdir -p lists/partial
    apt-get clean
    apt-get update
    With no issues, Like abhicr suggested.

    Thanks for the help.

    Now, I ran the Intel Graphics Installer again, But I still get an issue, and I'm now calling for help. This is exactly what I get:
    Performing Diagnostics, Everythings Okay, But Upgrading System is when it faulters.
    updating package cache failed
    W:Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/di...ty/Release.gpg Something wicked happened resolving 'security.ubuntu.com:http' (-11 - System error)
    , W:Failed to fetch http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/...ng/Release.gpg Something wicked happened resolving 'archive.canonical.com:http' (-11 - System error)
    , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    Please, Can someone help?!?! SAVE MY SOUL, I don't know what to do!!

    I solved one problem, but got another.
