I don't understand what is being requested of me.

I am absolutely a Linux virgin and I have been given a laptop with Ubuntu pre-installed as a present. I like it; it is fast and fault free (until now). My PC runs Windows 7 and I like that as well. I have however noticed the message noted below when updating on the Linux laptop and I haven’t a clue, a) what it means; b) What to do about it, if anything.
Is there anyone out there fluent in ‘idiot speak’ who can help me with (very) simple instructions.

“Could not initialise the package information

An unresolvable problem occurred while initialising the package information.

Please report this bug for the 'update-manager' package and try to include the following error message:

'E:Dynamic MMap ran out of room. Please increase the size of APT::Cache-Limit. Current value: 25165824. (man 5 apt.conf), E:Error occurred while processing pike7.6-meta (NewVersion1), E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_lucid_universe_binary-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.” ? ?
