Hello experts,

When I try to log in the package manager, it doesn’t update and straightly goes to the following error:

"E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_i18n_Translation-en
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
E: _cache->open () failed, please report."

I need to solve this. Please help me to solve it.

Thanks a lot.

Maybe you are doing it wrong that’s why you received those errors you posted. But before doing the upgrade be sure to backup your existing Ubuntu installation. The procedure described below is an upgrade done on an Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS to 12.10. If you happen to be using a different version of the operating system, refer to ubuntu documentation | UpgradeNotes | General Upgrade Information for the complete guide.

Launch the Update Manager. Press the Superkey or Windows key to launch the Dash and search for Update Manager.

Check for updates. Click the Check button to check for new updates. If there are any updates to install, use the Install Updates button to install them, press Check again after that first update is complete – then press the Upgrade button.

Install the upgrade. A message will appear informing you of the availability of the new release. Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.
