Hi,

I can't update my system - I am runing Karmic/9.10

When I launch Update Manager, I get:

"Please report this bug for the 'update-manager' package and try to include 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_karmic_main_i18 n_Translation-en%5fGB, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.' "

Appreciate any advice

Mike

Here are the known bugs in update-manager:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager

This one seems to be like yours:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+bug/449943

and it needs confirmation/reopening, as you see.

If you have a solution or workaround, please also add this to the bug report.
