Hi Guys,
I have a Ubuntu 9.04 Linux running on Freescale's i.MX515(ARM Cortex based) board with me.

There were about 250 updates pending and I did that today, well some of the updates failed because of the infamous errors:

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: Couldn't rebuild package cache
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

So, when I do the 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' I get new errors related to FIS partition:

Cannot find FIS partition 'initramfs'
User postinst hook script [/usr/sbin/flash-kernel] exited with value 1
dpkg: error processing linux-image-2.6.28-18-imx51 (--configure):
