Re: Help I've deleted everything unde /var/cache/apt
Sorry let me correct meself slightly [:-)]
The directories contain downloaded files and two binary files which are
lists of files that have been downloaded. The lists of available
packages are stored in /var/lib/apt/lists so you just need to recreate
the directories, the 'apt-get update' command is not needed.

Try re-creating the follwoing paths and the run 'apt-get update':
The directory contains (or should I say contained!) the downloaded .deb
files that have been installed along with lists of whats available on
the servers, which is why you need to run 'apt-get update' to regenerate

Is there a tool to rebuild my system as apt is now totally broken.
