Hi @zeus1, and welcome!
I detect an XY problem here.
You don’t want to remove that file, not really. You want to fix thee error, and it seems the way is by removing that file, while it is, actually, essential.
That is the real problem. It couldn’t sync the databases, and to do that it needs a file that it was unable to retrieve. Which sounds like some kind of internet connectivity problem. Most likely a DNS problem, if we go with my guess.
Please open a terminal, and run the following commands and provide the output here afterwards:
Hope you manage!
When posting terminal output, copy the output and paste it here, wrapped in three (3) backticks, before AND after the pasted text. Like this:
This will just cause it to be rendered like this:
eget nisl elit id
arcu erat varius
cursus sem quis eros.
Instead of like this:
Sed sollicitudin dolor eget nisl elit id condimentum arcu erat varius cursus sem quis eros.
Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.
Thereby increasing legibility thus making it easier for those trying to provide assistance.
For more information, please see:
Also, if your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with
LC_ALL=C. For example:
This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.
In order for us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to provide assistance, a lot of information is necessary. To that end, please see:
