On my eeepc I get this when trying to do an upgrade:

/home/user> sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Error!
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

The status files does not exist.  How do I rebuild it?
