    You need to run the command from the command line, which you can access on the Applications->Accessories->terminal.
    Type in (or copy) the command:
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    You'll be asked for your password. Don't worry if it doesn't show as you type, this is a normal Ubuntu security precaution: type in your password as usual.

    Good luck.
