Error Opening Ubuntu Software Center

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi guys,

I just install Ubuntu 10.10 in my Pc. After the installation is completed, I just want to download some software,s via "Ubuntu Software Center" which is presented in the applications menu.

 But here I got the problem. It doesn’t opens.

I also got an error message.

Could not initialize the package information

An unresolveble problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

"E: Encountered a section with no Package: header. E: Problem with Merge List /var/lib/apt/lists/, ubuntu_dists-maverick_main_binary-1386_packages, E:The package list or status file could not be parsed or opened"


So, I need some solution for this.

Thanks in advance:

The solution is that the package is not properly obtained for your use. This might be a problem as for when you were about to install the OS or that the package that you have obtained is itself corrupted. As such you can do one thing. You need to install the package once more.

1. Now copy the package name for later use.

2. First remove the package from the OS using the Add or Remove programs.

3. Open the Synaptic Package manager from the Menu.

4. Check the package which you were un-installing and then Click Apply so that changes are done to be installed. You may require the disk.
