    Could not Initialize package information

    Greetings.

    Today, on Ubuntu 11.04, when attempting to update, this error message appeared in update-manager:


    Code:
    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/extras.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_binary-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

    The same appears in Terminal upon sudo apt-get update/upgrade:

    Code:
    E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
    E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/extras.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_binary-i386_Packages
    E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

    Would anyone please suggest what the solution to this issue may be?
