  just tried to watch a video in chrome, only to be presented with
"Missing plug-in".  huh?  and when i tried to update, i got:

Reading package lists... Error!
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

  is there an aptitude "clean" suboption i can try to rectify this?
