    I can't update in Unbuntu 12.04

    Every time I try updating (via both the terminal and update manager) I get these errors:

    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


    Is there something wrong with Ubuntu's servers? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Question Re: I can't update in Unbuntu 12.04

    Having the same prob.

    Could not initialize the package information

    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, Eroblem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise-updates_multiverse_i18n_Translation-en, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'


    ubuntu-bug -w

    greg@greg-HP-Compaq-dx2200-MT:~$

    And it crashes. The monitor has vertical lines through it on the blue . Will not boot.
    Leave it for a day or so and the lines arew gone and it reboots



    Any Help

    Did you try using a different mirror? Open Software Sources, choose a different mirror from the list.

    This is not an unusual issue and has been addressed by the forum a zillion times. Please make it a habit to search the forum before you ask for help.

    First of all using update manager change the SERVER you are using to MAIN or Anything. Then check your Software sources and remove by unchecking the cdrom-source. Then in terminal run following commands one after another.

    sudo -i
    apt-get clean
    cd /var/lib/apt
    mv lists lists.old
    mkdir -p lists/partial
    apt-get clean
    apt-get update
    exit

    Also make sure you are connected online.

    I followed everything, down to the "t." I still get the same results. And yes, I'm connected to the internet.

    There's a bug in Ubuntu that prevents users from switching off system-wide proxy settings. I looked into it, and fixed the problem. Close this thread.

    Better if you mark the thread 'solved' using 'thread tools'.
