I installed Ubuntu 11.10 today on my Lenovo w500. After that when i tried running
sudo apt-get update
This is the error i am getting.
Get:117 http://ftp.jaist.ac.jp oneiric-security/universe TranslationIndex [73 B] 99% [48 Sources bzip2 0 B] [22 Sources bzip2 5,294 kB] 1,983 kB/s 0s bzip2: Compressed file ends unexpectedly; perhaps it is corrupted? *Possible* reason follows. bzip2: Inappropriate ioctl for device Input file = (stdin), output file = (stdout)
It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted. You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.
You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.
I found the following similar question : Errors while updating Ubuntu 11.10 , But the solutions mentioned ( changing the download server, running apt-get clean, apt-get autoclean) and have also tried removing the /var/cache/apt/archives/lists direcotry.
As a result of this, I am unable to install any new packages.
