[SOLVED] Installing updates problem

Post by Georgian »

Screenshot at 2019-01-04 13-15-33.png
When I select install updates I get this message:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

Please can someone advise :?

Hello, Georgian.

Close Update Manager.
Open a terminal window.
Execute the commandline

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --configure -a
exactly as it has been typed here.
Provided the command succeeds, you can retry Update Manager.

HTH,
Karl
