hi to all.

I just attempted to use upgrade manager and received this message
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

I have never received this before and when I entered "dpkg --configure -a"
in to terminal I receive a message advising I need to be a superuser.
any help?

thanks
