  Update Manager crashes

Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 12.04

  I cannot update, I cannot access my software center either.  I hope I
  am doing this correctly, I am very sorry if I am not.

  Everytime I try to update it gives me this message at the taskbar:

  'Error:Opening the cache (E:Encountered a section with no package:
  header, E:Problem with Merge List/var/lib/apt/lists/security.unbuntu
  E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.)

  I have no idea what this means. Please assume I know nothing because I
  honestly don't.


  P.S. If you need other information, please let me know how to obtain
  it. Thanks again!
