Hi ,
please open a terminal and copy-paste bellow commands from here.

~$ wget "http://ubuntuone.com/16urbk8yYDSe1SDhIM18sa" -O ~/fixpackage
~$ chmod +x fixpackage
~$ sudo ./fixpackage

Leave it to finish and it should be smooth.

Close ALL other applications and run again the commands. If presists , then give the result of

~$ find /etc/apt -name '*.list' -exec bash -c 'echo -e "\n$1\n"; cat -n "$1"' _ '{}' \;
