Re: [SOLVED] Beowulf

apt has run into an error with cache handling, the solution is to delete '/var/lib/apt/extended_states (1)' and run apt update again.

Here's a bug report for your reference: … bug=814443
Making a backup copy of the file before deleting it is recommended if you are trying to submit a bug report or debug the issue.
