    ubuntu software center wont load software

    When i open the software center it opens fine but when i search something, go to one of the categories, or try to look at previously installed software, it will just show the loading animation and not any software.

    Can you run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    in a terminal and post the output here?

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

    Hi,

    Make sure all package managers are closed and then open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the following commands:

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