How can I fix the debian apt-get error: "E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room"

During apt-get update, you may see this error.
The simple way to solve it is like so:
cat << EOF >> /etc/apt/apt.conf
APT::Cache-Limit "10000000";(hit return here)
EOF (hit return again)

Thus, when you 'cat /etc/apt/apt.conf' it should contain:
APT::Cache-Limit "10000000";

This should allow you to apt-get update and avoid the above mentioned error.
