Getting error after running "apt-get update"

Posted July 9, 2014 2.2k views

The last line of output is “Reading package lists… Error!”. That’s it. No other message and can’t figure out how to fix it. Tried the standard “rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*”, “apt-get clean”, “apt-get update” but to no avail.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
