View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem with program installation

October 22nd, 2009, 09:57 PM
I am beginner with ubuntu. I try to install some new programs, but I get an error message. I tried with the update manager, synaptic and also with apt-get from terminal, I get the following error message.

E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/gb.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_jaunty_main_bin ary-i386 Packages

Can you please suggest some solution?
Thanks, Ferenc

Go to the terminal and run these commands...

$ sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
$ sudo apt-get update

That should fix it. Good luck!
