Linux Mint – E: Encountered a section with no Package: header

E: Encountered a section with no Package: header y E: Problem with MergeList

Estoy usando Linux Mint pero en los ultimos dias he querido actualizar mi sistema operativo pero cada que ejecuto apt-get o el update manager me despliega los siguientes errores:

Fetched 101 kB in 4s (24.9 kB/s)
Reading package lists... Error!
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
 E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
 E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/packages.medibuntu.org_dists_precise_non-free_binary-i386_Packages
 E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Como solucionar E: Encountered a section with no Package: header y E: Problem with MergeList

Al final googleando un poco encontre que tan solo era de borrar las listas de paquetes de software en el cache de Linux (ya sea Debian, Ubuntu o Mint), de la siguiente manera:

:~$ sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
:~$ sudo apt-get update

Comentario, Preguntas o agradecimientos?
