Error messege:

sudo dpkg configure a' to correct the problem.

I used synaptic package manager to install WIne....It stalls on "ttf-mscorefonts-installer (3.0". So, I try update manager and it asked me to restart computer which I do. When I try to re-run synaptic manager I get the above error.

Open a terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal)
and paste the following code into the terminal window:

sudo dpkg --configure -a
press Enter. You will be prompted for your password, type it and press Enter again.

When you type your password the terminal doesn't offer any visual feedback.

I've done this already in terminal. It just recycles and recycles like its not downloading from the website, and I do have a Internet connection.
