View Full Version : [ubuntu] update error

September 7th, 2008, 09:37 AM
When trying to download updates I get the following error message

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

Can someone let me know how to fix this.
