Hi

I have frequently received the error message below when trying to install automatic updates. Can anyone help please? Thanks



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

Can we continue?
I've gone from Gutsy to Hardy but when I check for updates I (after several minutes of downloading) get the following:
"could no load {a long URL of the us server} malformed file"
I have tried several servers including the one recommended for my location.
