Run the command mentioned in the error message:

sudo dpkg --configure -a

This usually happens when the installation process was somehow interrupted.

It may also be worth running in terminal:

sudo apt-get install -f
to repair any damaged packages.

Yep, then a good idea is to make sure everything is updated and cleaned:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get autoclean
