A package manager (such as apt-get) is currently running. Waiting for it to finnish. Technical info: "apt-get dist-upgrade --simulate" exit code:100
Tried the following:
user@host:$ sudo dpkg --audit [sudo] password for user: user@host:$ sudo dpkg --configure -a user@host: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade Reading package lists... Error! E: Malformed Description-md5 line; doesn't have the required length (32 != 23) 'ffea6fc15220dfe66af0c95' E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
This might be a possible solution, haven’t tried it yet, found after googling the error msg in the title
Is it safe to do this or is there a better solution?
sudo apt-get clean sudo mv /var/lib/apt/list /var/lib/apt/lists.old sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/apt/lists/partial sudo apt-get clean
