I recently upgraded my Linux Mint to Rafaela 17.2 and while I was tweaking a little bit the interface and installing some themes and icons, I found myself with this annoying error message:

W: Failed to fetch http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty/partner/binary-amd64/Packages Hash Sum mismatch"

    Not a solution, but are you sure that doesn't let you complete the update? That's a warning, not an error. – terdon Oct 13 '15 at 22:17

  • @terdon My bad, it does let me complete updates. But when I run the "sudo apt-get update" command it always ends with the error message I described. I just want to remove that error message as it is starting to become annoying at least for me. I think I'll try the other suggestions provided. – Guillermo Torres Oct 15 '15 at 9:44

Running rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/* (as root) fixes this error.
