Ubuntu :: Synaptic And Update Manager Doesn't Work - The Package Lists Or Status File Could Not Be Parsed Or Opened

Jan 18, 2010

This happened completely randomly. One day, my synaptic and update manager is working fine and the next day, I open one of them and get a error window that doesn't say anything (no details on the error). So, i tried the terminal, sudo apt-get update, and this message shows:

Reading package lists... Error!
E: Problem parsing dependency Depends
E: Error occurred while processing lib´┐Żtartup-notificamion0-dev (NewVersion1)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_karmic_main_binary-i386_Packages

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 :: 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

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager / Software Sources / Synaptic Package Manager Not Working?

Sep 30, 2010

It started with Update Manager constantly recycling and not updating. When it starts it shows 295 files and 308MB waiting to download. When I click on 'Install Updates' it appears to go through the process, and then presents me with the same 'waiting to install' window again - and again, and again - in fact as many times as I care to click the 'Install Updates' button. No error messages appear. The 'Settings' button produces the same apparent process as the 'Install Updates' button, but doesn't present me with any other screen.

I've tried all the solutions I could find on these forums and nothing works. The sudo suggestions for Terminal usually produce error codes. adjusting a line in the 'hosts' file. When I tried this I was presented with the obstacle of not having access to the read-only file, and no matter how much I searched I couldn't find how to gain access . While investigating all these possible solutions, I was directed in turn to the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, but when I attempted to start them, 'Starting Administrative Application' appeared briefly on the taskbar - and then disappeared!
