I was running Add Programs, dl'ing to install wine among others, and Lo and Behold, power was interrupted. When it came back on, I tried to continue where I left off but I am getting this message: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. I am so new to Ubuntu that I'm not sure how to "manually" run this... please help, I will be back on in a few hours. Thanks!!:confused::confused:

Open a terminal (applications > accessories > terminal) and type


sudo dpkg --configure -a

Enter your password when asked. Then type


sudo apt-get update
