unresolved dependencies

Postby bazrider » Wed Feb 27, 2013 4:53 pm

Hullo to every one here. I am bazrider or commonly known as Basile. I am a newbe in ubuntu and in linux in general. Some days ago i had in my upper right corner shown the forbidden (traffic) sign. When i clicked upon it had shown me the following message :
"...Ε:Encountered a section with no Package: header, Problem with Mergelist/var/lib/apt/lists/packeges.medibuntu.org_dists_precise_free_i18n_Translation-el,E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened...". I post here because in the greek ubuntu forum this topic is placed in the "software" section.
What am i asking here is :
1. is this a worrning for a serious malfunction ?
2. can it be fixed ? If yes then in what manner can i fix it ?
3. what may have caused it ?
I have searched in the forum in there was a specific topic about this (unresolved dependencies, but i did not find anything relevant).
Any kind of help shall be wellcome.
Thanks in advance to anybody who "bothers" replie :-)

Welcome bazrider, you can try this first before we examine your sources. Open up your terminal and type the following in order and hit enter after each:
Code: Select all
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

Hope that helps. Be sure to add a signature with your hardware/software info from the user control panel ;) ...
