After this index message, was told to check broken packages with Synaptic [couldn't; got: Error occurred. E. Encountered section with no package header. E. Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/uberstudent.net_dists_heraclitus_contrib_i18n_Translation-en]. E. The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened. E. _cache->open() failed, please report.
Also told to check file permissions & correctness of file '/etc/apt/sources.list' [seemed all OK] & reload the software information with: sudo apt-get update [gets that some index files failed to download]
& with: sudo apt-get install -f [Failed to fetch /stable/release as unable to find entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages in Release file (wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)].
Nothing will install or update.

Please go to Applications menu > System > Administration > Fixes >Software System Fixer and run it.

Does that fix the issue?

System Software fixer seemed to fix most of problem, because started downloading and updating, but wasn't complete and ended with this message [which was repeated when reran the Software System fixer]:
Could not refresh the list of updates; E: Malformed line 14 in source list /etc/apt/sources.listed/official-package-repositories.list (URI parse) E: The list of sources could not be read E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed

Ended with this prompt: root@GO-4: /var/lib/apt/lists#

Please first ensure you have all updates applied from the Update Manager. Click the shield in your system tray to reach it.

Then go to Applications menu > System > Software > Software Sources > Restore the Default Settings.

Then, hit F12 on your keyboard and run this line:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
Does this fix the issue?

Great job Stephen, it fixed everything. You've done sensational job with this OS and recommend it to all whenever I can [usually use suse or slack, and sometimes SL or deb, but Uber now my preferred OS].
Can only made token donation for now, but hope to do better in future.
Once again, thanks so very much.
