my first question :D


I too had similar error:
dpkg parse error in file /var/lib/dpkg/status near line 6605 package libgif4: missing version

I looked at the chunk around 6605 line it it certainly looked messed up (libgif4 package was messed up). Then checked the same line in status-old file and it looked alright. So renamed status-old to status. Ran sudo apt-get update and everything went fine after that.
