"Stop Sign" on Ubuntu Linux and preventing updates

An error occurred please run package manager from the right click manager or apt-get in a terminal to see what is wrong.
The error message was Error Opening the cashe (E:unable to parse package file/var/lib/apt/lists/za.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dist_trusty-updates_main_i18n_Translation-en(1),
E:The package lists or status files could not be parsed or opened.
This means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies.


This prevents any new updates from coming in- or upgrades.
How do I fix this problem?

If you have added on any additional repos to allow you to install other software - remove them (comment them out so they are disbaled but you can add them back in afterwards).
If you do not understand the line above then you have probably not done it - so skip it.

Now go to a command line (run terminal) and type in

sudo apt-get update

paste what it says in here, or follow the instructions it gives to fix it.
