I've recently install a copy of Ubuntu 13.10 from a USB drive, and a lot of things are going wrong. My first indicator of this was that Ubuntu Software Center crashes every time I try to load it. I've tried multiple workarounds, but pretty much all of them involve running some variant of apt-get install from terminal. Whenever I do this, I get a message like this:
Reading package lists... Error! E: Unable to parse package file /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_ dists_saucy_universe_i18n_Translation-en (1) E: Problem opening /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_saucy-u pdates_main_binary-i386_Packages E: The package or status file could not be parsed or opened.
I opened both of the file mentioned, and they both looked fine to me. The first part seems to have something to do with languages, but Language Center also crashes when I try to open it. Does anybody have any suggestions?
