    Re: sudo apt-get update (Unable To Lock The List Directory)?

    The signatures of today's update could not be verified, so after the update I started googling and ended up here:

    http://cortman.wordpress.com/2012/02...ors-in-ubuntu/

    Now, ever since I did this:

    Code:
    sudo rm -r /var/lib/apt/*
    I cannot update apt-get any more. And that's how I ended up in this thread. I keep getting

    Code:
    E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (2: No such file or directory)
    E: Unable to lock the list directory
    after executing sudo apt-get update. Synaptic gives the same error. Basically the same problem the thread starter had. Did anyone find a way of fixing this?
