I am using Ubuntu 17.10 (artful). After I upgraded from 17.04, my apt-get update stopped working. I already installed libstdc++6 (32-bit & 64-bit) and its dependencies like other posts for Ubuntu 16 suggest. I reinstalled libgnutls30 as well.

This is the output of apt-get update:

root@adam-desktop:~/Downloads# apt-get update

I had to wipe the disk and reinstall Ubuntu 17.10. I tried the recovery option first, but the relocation error was still there.
