I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and regularly get errors related to printing on an HP750 PSC.

I am asked to accept filing a report, which I do and then the message returned is

Could not determine package or source package name.

Does this mean that there are persistent problems that cannot be reported back, and are therefore not being addressed?

How do I fix a "Problem with MergeList" error when trying to do an update? They seem to be corrupt or invalid MergeList.

To make it more safer, I would make a full copy of


/var/lib/apt/lists/* before to delete it.
