I've had something odd happen, and I normally don't use the machine this happened on, but wonder what I should go and do from here.
Issue is that for some reason or another, when opening Synaptic package manager, I get and error that reads this:
"E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report."
I went to terminal and entered
"dpkg --configure -a"
I get this once entered:
"Setting up language-support-es (1:7.04+20070209) ...
And hangs there, for at least three minutes. Should I wait longer, or is there a process to stop or end it.
I am not able to enter into Synaptics PM, or Mint update, before or after this.
I appreciate any help in the matter.
