    Hi cjohns30 & Welcome to Ubuntu forums,

    I've run into this before and here's how I fixed it on my machine.
    your mileage may vary.

    in a terminal execute the following commands one at a time.

    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
    sudo apt-get update
    you can copy the command and paste it into your terminal.

    Good Luck!
