So I updated to ubuntu 20.04 LTS and then I started getting this error on the top bar of my desktop:
Error opening the cache(E:flAbspath on /var/lib/dpkg/status failed - realpath (13ermission denied), E: could not open file - open(2: No such file or directory), E: Problem opening,E: The Package list or status file could not be parsed or open). This usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies.
Also when I use sudo apt update I get the warning:
W: Download is performed unsandboxed as root as file '/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/ e' couldn't be accessed by user '_apt'. - pkgAcquire::Run (13: Permission denied)
I checked my status file in /var/lib/dpkg/status and here is the file :
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3192885 May 16 11:12 /var/lib/dpkg/status
I also set changed the ownership of /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/ to _apt:root but nothing seems to work!
