Finally , fixed .

I searched in /lib and found an other "libreadline.so.6" and replaced it and problem fixed.

Thank you for your attention.

    A similar situation to the problem you experienced has arisen in this question, but I'm having trouble understanding how to apply this solution. Where exactly was the file that you replaced, and where exactly was the file you replaced it with? Thanks for any more details you can provide. – Eliah Kagan Dec 27 '12 at 3:50

Try sudo apt-get clean and then run the update command again.

  • I tried sudo apt-get clean and then run the update command again ,but it doesn't changed .When I enter "gpg" in terminal , it returns:"gpg: symbol lookup error: /usr/local lib/libreadline.so.6: undefined symbol: PC".!? – mohammads Mar 7 '12 at 12:50
  • It happened when I installed readline6.2.2 for python2.7.2!! – mohammads Mar 7 '12 at 13:01
  • Try this:sudo apt-get clean cd /var/lib/apt sudo mv lists lists.old sudo mkdir -p lists/partial sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update – LnxSlck Mar 9 '12 at 1:01
  • No change...!!? – mohammads Mar 10 '12 at 3:03

well... same problem here (ubuntu 12.04 , 64bit). This worked for me:

sudo mv /usr/local/lib/libreadline.so.6 /usr/local/lib/libreadline_problem.so.6
sudo mv /usr/local/lib/libreadline.so.6.2 /usr/local/lib/libreadline_problem.so.6.2

sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libreadline.so.6 /usr/local/lib/libreadline.so.6
sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libreadline.so.6.2 /usr/local/lib/libreadline.so.6.2

sudo  apt-get update

:)
