    Re: unfortuntly my dpkg totaly uninstall

    That error generally refers to you having a package manager open or working at the same time. Make sure nothing else is doing anything - you might have update manager working in the background.

    Re: unfortuntly my dpkg totaly uninstall

    Have you tried this in a terminal

    sudo apt-get update

    Also if that command works .... to update/upgrade everything once more .... you could try

    sudo apt-get install aptitude

    sudo aptitude update

    sudo aptitude safe-upgrade

    What does this show when you type it in a terminal lowercase (LS) by the way.

    ls /var/lib/dpkg/
