Having this problem after flashing the OS on your SD card?
It looks the latest wheezy is having this problem. I didn’t have this problem before. Any way the simplest fix I have so far is clearing the status file and running the update again
i@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/status pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo touch /var/lib/dpkg/status pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-get update
The first command is to remove the corrupted status file
The second would create a blank file with name status, just the reverse of the first command
Last, update to fill up the status..
That is it..
