Getting error after running "apt-get update"

  • Posted July 9, 2014

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.


Same here, nothing works… Any way to fix it?

I am having a simillar problem. Cannot get package system to work. Have not been using the system in a while. Probably missed some important updates. Currently stuck.
