Did you have it working before?

If not, search the forum for info on how to fix it.

If so, did you alter sources.list?

I tried deleting the package list manually,
ran update again, it downloads it, and gives me

Asmodeus, did you run dpkg-restore as root?  

If you have and the problem is from something else, download the dpkg.tar.gz file from this website, gunzip & untar the directory and copy over  dpkg/status to /var/lib/dpkg/status.
