View Full Version : [ubuntu] /var/lib/apt/lists/

December 27th, 2012, 06:10 PM
About a month ago I tried to update some programs and i kept getting a message revolving around "/var/lib/apt/lists/skulltag.net_download_files_release_deb_dists_stab le_multiverse_binary-i386_Packages".

Now, I had skulltag installed at the time, but since then i have uninstalled and deleted every file related to it. However, in the /var/lib/apt/lists/ directory, this file still shows up and will not go away.

It is keeping me from updating anything on my computer. Every time i try to update a program in terminal it gives me this error "Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/skulltag.net_download_files_release_deb_dists_stab le_multiverse_binary-i386_Packages"

Someone please help.
