An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

How did you go about installing cairo-dock?

It seems to me you used some out-dated instructions.

Cairo-dock should be in the standard repositories.

You need to diaable any extra repositories that you have added to "enable" you to install cairo-dock and then you should be able to update.

reading the user guide and instructions for this UNNAMED distro would help
though from the error you posted I am guessing one of the versions of Ubuntu
E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/repository.cairo-dock.org_ubuntu_dists_intrepid_cairo-dock_binary-i386_Packages
