    This is a new one for me. Sorry. Wait for better help than I.
    The other thing is a clean install, but wait a while because I don't have all the answers by any means.

    Perhaps you should just delete the troublesome .list files, then reboot into recovery mode and execute:

    sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-desktop && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

    That's all I can think of, short of a fresh install.

    If you still have this problem, you might find this link useful:

    https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ub...ry/104520.html

    1. I ended up with three corrupt list files due to some problem with my / drive. fsck found 3 blocks that had multiple claims and I replied "fix it", which resulted in corruption in three list files.

    2. I discovered the problem when attempting to install memtester package:

    (Reading database ... dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/memtester_2.93.1-3.1_i386.deb (--unpack):
    files list file for package `libuniconf4.2' is missing final newline

    3. Using the instructions at the above link, I was able reinstall libuniconf package. However, the next attempt to install memtester ran into another bad list file (for ntfs-3g). So, repeated reinstall instructions and attempted install of memtester until successful.

    4. Haven't encountered any problems with package installs since then. YMMV.

    Best of luck.
