hi all
i am facing an error while updating via update manager. i am currently having NATTY version

An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

'E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/in.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_bina ry-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'

what could be the probable solution,dont ask me to re-install the system and re-update,it takes time.

looking for some quick and reliable remedy

thank you
