This question already has an answer here:
I was installing Chrome using
apt-get and after that I'm not able use command
sudo apt-get install or
sudo apt-get update
anything which I am doing with my package manager is not working, is always showing this error:
Reading package lists...Error! E: Problem parsing dependency Recommends E: Error occurred while processing foomatic-filters (NewVersion2) E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
Can you please tell me how to fix this problem? I am using Ubuntu 11.10. I am not even able to upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04 because of this problem.
