package index files corrupted


sometimes when I try to install something with dselect or apt, I get an error like this
The package index files are corrupted. No Filename: filed for package mount and it doesn't let me to go on with the installation until I fix them. But I don't know how or what it means.

What should I do?

Have you run an apt-get update recently ? If you're using cds, have you checked the integrity of the cd, otherwise if using a network mirror, have you tried a different one ?

Cheers,
