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.
