    Ubuntu 8.10 will not update.

    Hello,
    I have installed Ubuntu 8.10 into a 2GB flash drive, and I was able to get it running. I was able to install the wireless drivers and get the wireless to work fine. When I tried to run the update with the wireless connection, it downloaded fine, but during the time it was installing, I acted like a noob and ran Firefox to surf the web and this caused the update installer to mess up until it crashed. Now, Ubuntu runs fine, but when I try to run the update manager and I tell it to install the updates It shows a message where it states that I need to run a command to fix the issue. I have ran the command, rebooted and ran the command, ran the command again and rebooted, but the message still comes up. What can I do to resolve this. I have tried to delete the downloaded installer packages thinking that they are corrupt, but it can't because it's blocked. I'm an Ubuntu noob in desperate need of help. Please help me!
