Problem with update manager in ubuntu


“Could not initialize the package information”

An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the ‘update-manager’ package and include the following error message:

‘E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/security.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise-security_universe_i18n_Translation-en, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.’

When you get a problem like this in ubuntu update manager simply run these commands

sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
sudo apt-get update

Thats it....
