Synaptic and update manager will not start
Started having this problem a few days ago. Any time I try to run synaptic or update manager I get this error:
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
W: Encountered status field in a non-version description
Ubuntu software center doesn't work either. Also, they cannot be started from terminal.
Thanks for any help.
I'm crazy, that's what keeps me sane.
