Update manger says 'sudo dpkg --configure-a'

Postby Alan Reynolds » Fri Feb 01, 2013 11:25 am

I was using the update manager when it reached a windows program and froze. I closed the terminal and now this prompt appears. What does it mean and how can I correct it?

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure-a' to correct the problem
E: _cache->open() failed, please report

You are going to need a space between 'configure' and '-a'

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --configure -a
