    Won't update after failed+crashed update.

    I failed an update and my computer crashed, and my update manager won't let me do a partial upgrade. When I press close:
    Software index is broken

    It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first.

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

    When I run sudo apt-get install -f:
    E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

    When I run sudo dpkg --configure -a:
    dpkg: error: parsing file '/var/lib/dpkg/updates/0178' near line 0: E0F after field name`'

    What do I do?
    Now I'm getting this error:
    Package operation failed

    The installation or removal of a software package failed.

    Open a terminal and run
    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/updates/*
    After that run
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    and see if that fixes it.

    The installation or removal of a software package failed.

    What command are you using?

    Run from a terminal
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    and if you get any errors,post the output of those commands.

    Good Luck

    Re: Won't update after failed+crashed update.

    I was using update manager when getting that error message.

    After I ran:
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

    I got this:
    Preconfiguring packages ...
    (Reading database ... 60%dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
    files list file for package 'libreoffice-impress' is missing final newline
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

    Open Software Sources either through the Synaptic Package Manager or Update Manager and change your Download Server to the Main Server.

    Then run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    again.

    If that works,don't forget to change the server back to your local server so you can get the faster downloads.

    Re: Won't update after failed+crashed update.

    Same error,

    Preconfiguring packages ...
    (Reading database ... 60%dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
    files list file for package 'libreoffice-impress' is missing final newline
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

    Also: Why is it that I can't install the other updates when I disable installing libreoffice-impress? I tried that too with Update Manager and it still gives error on libreoffice-impress and won't let me install the other updates.
