Try running this and see if it clears up the issue:

Hello,
I tried to do what you say, but:

Leyendo listas de paquetes... ¡Error!
E: Hay problemas sincronizando el archivo - sync (5: Error de
entrada/salida)
E: No se pudieron analizar o abrir las listas de paquetes o el archivo
de estado.

Thank you for your help.
