A fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04(LTS) onto Virtual Box 4.2.18 seems to go well, however, I receive a bzip2 related error when trying to update. I was hoping a seasoned Ubuntu expert could help me decipher and correct the problem. Here is the terminal output:

Try the following, it worked for me:

sudo rm -r /var/lib/apt/lists/*
sudo apt-get update
