View Full Version : [kubuntu] Installation of KDE blows package

March 6th, 2010, 10:11 PM
After installation of the Kubuntu desktop via aptitude I get the following error from synaptics et al:

E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/de.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_karmic_main_i18 n_Translation-de

What do I need to do to resolve this issue?

Killed update was the reason...

sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.old
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list.old /etc/apt sources.list
sudo apt-get update

did the trick
