    apt-get update failing

    I am doing an "apt-get update" and receiving the following errors. I have searched the forums and followed instructions on some similar posts but still can't get past it. Any suggestions?

    Code:
    W: Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_quantal_universe_binary-amd64_Packages  Hash Sum mismatch
    
    
    W: Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_quantal_universe_binary-i386_Packages  Hash Sum mismatch
    
    
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    Try removing the contents of /var/lib/apt/lists.

    Code:
    sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
    Then re-run the apt-get update, and it should redownload the lists for you.

    Thanks for the very very very quick reply. And as a bonus it worked! Thank you so much. I could have sworn I had found that solution elsewhere but I guess not.
