SOLVED - Update Manager broken

Post by magicchance » Thu Feb 08, 2018 4:22 pm

See attached pic. Some time yesterday my Update Manager stopped working, and I keep getting this warning. No idea what's going on, or why. Anyone else having this same trouble? Does anyone know how to get past it?

Close Update Manager and then do:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --configure -a
.... like it says. :wink:

Is closing the UM window a requirement? If so, that explains it. I had left it open while trying to make the fix.
