Anyways. I did run the clean command and

Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade
worked again. Still I see errors. When I run Update Manager I am getting these errors

Code:

You have to look at warnings like that: "dpkg: warning: parsing file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line XXX"
I think there is no need to use a backup copy of status file.
