Each and every time that I run update, the last 4 lines read as follows:

Reading package lists... Error!
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/extras.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_trusty_main_i18n_Translation-en%5fCA
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

What can or must I do to resolve this problem?


I have the same problem. My quick and dirty fix is:

sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/extras.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_trusty_main_i18n_Translation-en%5fCA

Then sudo apt-get install works again!

But after sudo apt-get update, the same problem may RISE AGAIN!
