    apt-get problem updating

    When updating with apt-get, I get the following at the end of the output.

    I have no idea how to resolve this.

    14 B]

    bzip2: Data integrity error when decompressing.
        Input file = (stdin), output file = (stdout)
    It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.
    You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.
    You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover
    data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.

    Try cleaning out your /apt/lists.

    sudo rm -r /var/lib/apt/list
    sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/apt/list/partial
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update
