You should be able to refresh the apt lists by:

1 Make a backup of your apt lists
sudo cp -R /var/lib/apt/lists/* ~/lists/

2 Remove apt lists
sudo rm -R /var/lib/apt/lists/*

3 Repopulate
sudo apt-get update

Cheers!

Be aware, there was a defect in the boot partition around the time frame you did your installation where you would run out of space and no longer be able to update. Sooner or later you may need to do a fresh installation to fix the problem. Follow the blog. https://blog.mobian-project.org/posts/20...021-03-17/
