This error is common when it is interrupted downloading the package list and have not processed all the files in the list, you just have to fix that ejecuar these commands 
 
 
sudo rm / var / lib / apt / lists / * -vf 
 
sudo apt-get update 
 
 
With this all listings shall be eliminated and downloaded the most current and you can continue installing the packages you need or upgrading your system. 
And that's it.
