Specs: ubuntu 12.04, 3/2g
Hi I can't upgrade :
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.canonical.com_dists_precise_partner_i18n_T ranslation-en
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

This is what happens when i go into synaptic. I have tried to solve this a few times at my friends place but i am super swamped. If anyone can help tonight i would appreciate it so i can solve this before i fly out in 2 days :0)

It's only good if it works. And if the PC has a 3GHz CPU & 2GB RAM, it will run the latest version.
