When did you first notice these issues? What were you doing? Did you ever get around to doing what karandpr said a few posts back (removing all the lists from that dir? and apt-get update apt-get upgrade?)
The last thing I did was... I think I was just futzing about in firefox...installed and removed a theme I think? I honestly don't remember 100%. I shut down, went and took a shower, started up and all hell broke loose.
No, I haven't done that yet because my terminal is still busy with the upgrade...actually it just finished as I was typing this. I'll do it now
