    Exclamation How to reset gnome-shell and python3 configuration in Ubuntu 20.04?

    I am having some auto-update issues after installing some gnome-shell extensions and now I want to reset the configuration of python3 and gnome-shell. How can I do that? Should I remove these packages including configuration files or it'll make it impossible to install those again? (as ubuntu-desktop and many packages will too be removed and become useless until I reinstall python3 and gnome-shell)

    The problem which I am having looks like this

    This is not a big problem so far but still it hinders my mood sometimes hence I would prefer to fix it if possible.

    I don't use gnome so I can not help you personally.

    However gnome users who may be more able to assist will be helped more if you can tell them exactly what you did; what gnome-shell extensions did you install and what else you have done to the system.

    Your error shows nothing to do with python3 or gnome.
    Try removing the corrupted file and try updating again.

    In a terminal you can run
    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/ppa.launchpad.net_git-core_ppa_ubuntu_dists_focal_InRelease
    sudo apt clean
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt full-upgrade
    Alternatively you can rm (remove) all the files in that directory
    like so,
    Code:
    sudo rm -rf /var/list/apt/lists/*
    These files get regenerated upon the apt update command.
