    Hi Guys and Gals,

    With Linux Mint 14 I am experiencing some problems with the update Manager.

    I have posted the error message below.

    E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_quantal_main_i18n_ Translation-en
    E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
    E: _cache->open() failed, please report.


    Thanks in advance if you can help with this.

    Try to remove headers.
    Open Terminal and execute this
    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
    sudo apt-get update
    Post error message here, if any.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
