    Hi and welcome to the forums

    Open a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T and run the following commands (best just to copy and paste to avoid errors):
    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
    sudo apt-get update
    The first command removes any corrupted package lists, the second one updates them.
