View Full Version : [ubuntu] Synaptic Package Maneger

December 28th, 2008, 02:29 AM
When Trying to open Package Manager I am getting this error:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
I have no idea how to correct this. Can anyone help?

The error is giving the answer

Run the following command in a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal)

sudo dpkg --configure -a

Close synaptic first. Then, open a terminal and run

Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Thank you guys. I am just a newbe here and should have realized I had to run the command with the sudo prefix.
