So my update manager tells me there are about 500 updates available.. I ran update manager to see whats up and I get an error:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report
I dont understand the conflict between apt-get and the update manager.
I also typed in "sudo dpkg --configure -a "and nothing happened.
whaqts up with that?
I had the message once when Mint Update crashed while installing some updates. Actually it just closed before it finished. When I ran the dpkg command given in a terminal however, it did finish the update. Did you type it in the terminal without quotes? Or with? It should be without. If you knew that and typed it accordingly, then never mind.
