Binary package hint: adept-updater

Pertinent data printed when attempting to run Updater as follows:

An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

'E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_intrepid_universe_binary-amd64_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'

Ubuntu 8.10

Need workaround to permit updating - usual apt-get commands (clean, update) haven't worked; message as follows:

Reading package lists... Error!
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_intrepid_universe_binary-amd64_Packages
