apt-get died unexpectedly segmentation fault

What an exciting title for a post :)

This is purely for me.  After starting my Raspberry PI 3, I went to do an update and the "sudo apt-get update" failed with an error that contained "has died unexpectedly" and "segmentation fault".

After many minutes googling and binging I found that this worked :

cd /tmp


dpkg -i apt_0.9.7.7+rpi1_armhf.deb


But, I ended up going to "" to find a package that existed and that I could actually install without an error.

It is meant to update your "apt-get', but it actually downgraded it.  I'm hoping after the update/upgrade, it will update that also.

Hope this helps someone.
