Bug#172549: apt: Irritating error message
I got the following error from apt:
Reading Package Lists... Error!
E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
E: Error occured while processing python (NewVersion1)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
But the reason was that the cache size was to small.
apt-get should show a better error message.
