While trying to run: apt updateI encountered the same problem described in

After following what @gvdhoorn suggested and trying to run apt update again, I get the following error:

Get:31 xenial/main amd64 Packages [3.150 kB]
Err:31 xenial/main amd64 Packages
Writing more data than expected (3154295 > 3149706) [IP: 80]

I tried this on two different PCs with Ubuntu 16.04 and ROS Kinetic installed. Is this something related to the repository having troubles or something wrong on my machine ? Does anyone else have the same problem?

What solved the issue was to run sudo apt-get clean before running sudo apt-get update
