sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Error!
E: Problem parsing dependency Depends
E: Error occurred while processing iron (NewVersion2)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/sparkylinux.org_repo_dists_testing_main_binary-i386_Packages
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened


found one topic on forum, did not help.

tried to repair with
sudo dpkg --configure -a
exits ok
but error remains

purged /var/lib/apt/lists
that did not resolve

any ideas?

Somebody reported me similar problem with iron package too.
Will try to re-pack it tonight so wait until tomorrow.

I tried the upgrade path again,
now getting this error.
I'll check Ubuntu link as well

I removed the .dist-ucf file and retried the upgrade
