Fixing/Solved "Unable to parse package file " after apt

   We get an error after executing any apt command in linux 

   The solution is very easy, I spent so many hours fixing it. 
   You just have to delete the file mentioned in the error, in my case I got: "E: Unable to parse package file /var/lib/apt/extended_states (1)" 
   I just deleted the file /var/lib/apt/extended_states 

   #sudo rm /var/lib/apt/extended_states 

 That's it
