Already reported:


All Debian Lenny users are affected, I guess (all my systems are). I
also added my comments there.

It seems Debian team is already working on it :-)

That was fast... is now solved. Good job!




But I have just tried again, and I get

Could not initialize the package information

A unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

'E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/security.debian.org_dists_lenny_updates_main_binary-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'

I think this is the same error as before.
