Public bug reported:

An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package
information.

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

'W:Encountered status field in a non-version description, E:Malformed
1st word in the Status line, E:Error occurred while processing amarok-
common (UsePackage2), E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status,
E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'

Ubuntu release
~$ lsb_release -rd
Description:	Ubuntu 10.10
Release:	10.10

Package version
~$ apt-cache policy package-manager
Segmentation fault

Ubuntu - bug didn't work; gave further error
Could not open location 'file:///home/john/ubunter%20-bug'
error stating file '/home/john/ubuntu -

Hope this helps someone; it's all bits to me.
