Getting error after running "apt-get update"

July 9, 2014 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.

  • 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.

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