Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Problems with adding/removing programs.

Posted by: GelatinousColours May 15 2008, 10:19 AM

Howdy fellas,

Imma dive straight in. Basically, whenever I try and add or remove a program or simply update my system with the Update Manager I get the following message:

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

Is there anything anybody can do me for? It's kinda been bugging me for a while now that I can't edit my apps etc.

I'm currently working on a Ubuntu distro, so you all know.

Thanks in advance people!

Just open a terminal and input:

sudo dpkg --configure -a
