Fix Broken Package Headers in Linux Mint

Posted here for future reference, as I’ve had to do this three times in as many months. Basically we’re purging the headers list, then repopulating it from scratch.

$su root
#rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
#apt-get update
#apt-get upgrade

Then have a coffee while you wait and occasionally press the ‘y’ key.

This also works in Kali Linux.
