Asked by Diego Alcántara on 2011-08-26

Hi, I'm having an issue whe trying to do an apt-get update KUbuntu 11.04, here is the output for commands from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PackageManagerTroubleshootingProcedure
I'd like to add that I've tried:
sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists
sudo mkdir /var/lib/apt/lists
sudo mkdir /var/lib/apt/lists/partial

and

> sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
> sudo apt-get clean
> sudo apt-get update
> sudo apt-get upgrade

and all the commands suggested in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt/+bug/346386

Kind regards,
Diego.
