I am facing a problem downloading anything using apt-get tool. I have played with my source list and I think something went wrong. Synaptic also doesn't work.

I've searched for the original source list online and I found this:

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ olivia main upstream import
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ raring partner

# deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu raring-getdeb apps
# deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu raring-getdeb games

So I have changed my /etc/apt/source.list

and typed sudo apt-get update This is the output of the update

Any idea how can this be solved?

You have a bundle of problems, so lets start for the most important:

  • Your version of Mint is obsolete. There are some improvements in newer versions of apt, found in recent version of Linux Mint that prevent problems like this:

    E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
    E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/security.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_raring-security_main_i18n_Translation-en
    E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
    
  • There are duplicated entries in your sources.list files. Search them and remove them. I'm seeing two "http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-security" entries.

  • Since you are using an obsolete version of Mint, and Mint use Ubuntu repositories mostly, you get several "Not Found" errors since they where removed from the servers to other servers. Update or change all the "security.ubuntu.com" and "archive.ubuntu.com" lines to "old-releases.ubuntu.com".
  • There are three GPG errors, one BADSIG that is caused due Canonical's revocation of key, and two no available signatures since you didn't add them. Fix that also.
  • Your package list cache is a mess. I would remove it entirely with:

    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/*
    

    And then update the package list. This should be done after you have fixed all the previous issues, otherwise is likely that its effect will be negligible, but it should fix the Reading package lists... Error! message.

Remember, most of these issues are just blown away if you reinstall (since Linux Mint doesn't offer a reliable upgrade path) your OS anew with a recent version of Mint.
