Notice: Ubuntu 22.04 repository MergeList corruption

Hi there,
As per comment: Updating the CUDA Linux GPG Repository Key - #38 by nvidia1354 (thank you @MicahParks)

There was a problem with one posting on June 6th, affecting users of the CUDA repository on Ubuntu 22.04 (x86_64) between the period 2022-06-07T00:00:00Z2022-06-07T20:30:00Z .

This repository metadata issue has been resolved, however machines that had run $ sudo apt-get update during the affected period may still have a malformed list file on their filesystem.

$ sudo apt-get update

Reading package lists... Error!
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/developer.download.nvidia.com_compute_cuda_repos_ubuntu2204_x86%5f64_Packages.lz4
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

To resolve this error delete the malformed MergeList files

$ sudo rm -v /var/lib/apt/lists/*cuda_repos*
/var/lib/apt/lists/developer.download.nvidia.com_compute_cuda_repos_ubuntu2204_x86%5f64_InRelease
/var/lib/apt/lists/developer.download.nvidia.com_compute_cuda_repos_ubuntu2204_x86%5f64_Packages.lz4

Then fetch updated metadata

$ sudo apt update
Get:1 https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu2204/x86_64  InRelease [1581 B]
Get:2 https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu2204/x86_64  Packages [50.3 kB]
