Ubuntu :: Error Reading Package Lists

May 20, 2011

Fairly new install of 11.04, installed from CD I burned from ISO. It's been updating fine up to now but all of a sudden started giving these errors. This is from Terminal sudo apt-get update attempt:

Code:
Reading package lists... Error!
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty-updates_main_binary-i386_Packages
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
Plan of action?

Ubuntu :: Error - E: The Package Lists Or Status File Could Not Be Parsed Or Opened.

Mar 19, 2010

Looks like my package manager was severely screwed. Any package manager-related command I try to run results in the following message in the console:

Code:

E: Read error - read (5: Input/output error)
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
Anything - aptitude, apt-get.

I removed all my sources.lists, I tried running apt-cache clean It didn't help. This is really serious. Not only am I unable to do anything with packages (update, remove, install), but the machine is really slow because of this.

Ubuntu :: Defraging The Package Lists?

May 16, 2010

I remember seeing a thread a while back in which it was stated and a way given to defrag or compress the database that is read before any install is done (forgot the name of the database or where said files are located), but I was wondering if anyone remembers this or has the script that did the defraging available. It made the "reading database" portion of an install zip through rather quickly especially helpful if you have quite a bit installed.

Ubuntu :: Package Lists Or Status File Could Not Be Parsed?

Jul 22, 2011

I have not ran into this before. I did a new install of 10,04 and was adding programs. Then software center and Synaptic stopped working. error message said it was most likely due to unmet dependencies. I googled fixs which most all ran some sort of "apt-get" command. I can't run those because as soon as it gets to "Reading package lists", I get this error.Read error - read (5: Input/output error)The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened

Debian Configuration :: Error Starting Domain: Internal Error Process Exited While Reading Console Log Output

Sep 9, 2010

I have mounted an NFS share with ISO images on my kvm Server. If i connect such a iso to a VM (using virt-manager) for installing a operating system i get the following error on startup: Error starting domain: internal error Process exited while reading console log output: char device redirected to /dev/pts/1 qemu: could not open disk image /mnt/iso/public/Linux/Distributions/Debian/debian-504-amd64-netinst.iso: Permission denied

The problem is definitly that kvm (or qemu or libvirt-bin, i don't know) tries to set permissions (rwx owner for libvirt-qemu, --- for kvm group, --- for other) on the file, although it has read permissions. Is it possible to change this behavior?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Anywhere With Lucid CD - "104280EF" - I/O Error - Error Reading Boot CD

Jun 9, 2010

After using Hardy on this machine for the past 2 years, I figured maybe it's time to try Lucid. So I burnt a Lucid live cd, and get the following message:

[quote]

/quote]

Pressing keys has no effect. [b]Ctrl+Alt:F[i]n[/n] doesn't do nothing.Nor does anything else I try. If I click on the Reboot button, it ends up wgere it started. Ogh, and the numbers 104280EF are also on the screen.

There's also a pretty picture accompanying all this: something that looks like a very small spreadsheet, and a stick-figure in a circle and... and I don't know what the heck is going on.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 - Loading VM / Error Reading Sector

Sep 1, 2011

I created a boot disc (USB drive) with Ubuntu 11.04 and tried to install it on my Gateway GT5012 desktop running Windows XP. It gets to the part where I can "Run Ubuntu from this USB," and I select it. The screen shows "loading vm/linuz..." or something like that, and then the entire screen turns into dots.

One time, when trying to boot from the drive, it brought up
"CHS: Error 0201 reading sector 1418005 (88/68/3)
EDD: Error 4200 reading sector 1418006"

I ran this same USB drive on another computer (also running XP), and it worked just fine, so I really have no idea what's going on. If it matters, the computer it worked on had Internet access, this one didn't. It says "Loading /casper/vmlinuz..." and then goes to the screen of flashing dots.

General :: Why Is Reading A FILE Faster Than Reading A VARIABLE?

May 4, 2011

I don't understand the results of a simple performance test I ran using two basic scripts (running on a high end server):

perfVar.zsh :

#!/bin/zsh -f
MYVAR=`cat $1`
for i in {1..10}

[code]...

Performance test result:

> time ./perfVar.zsh BigTextFile > /dev/null
./perfVar.zsh FE > /dev/null 6.86s user 0.32s system 100% cpu 7.177 total
> time ./perfCat.zsh BigTextFile > /dev/null
./perfCat.zsh FE > /dev/null 0.01s user 0.10s system 91% cpu 0.118 total

I would have thought that accessing a VARIABLE was way faster than reading a FILE on the file system... Why this result ?Is there a way to optimize the perfCat.zsh script by reducing the number of accesses to the file system ?
