Hi and welcome to the forums Saqib Amin :)

If the suggestions by dino99 don't work, then try this:

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

thanks Rubi1200 ur code worked.
can you tell me what the first line mean and what it did?

The first command removes corrupt package lists, the second command refreshes and updates it again.

Glad this worked for you :-)
