    yeah open your terminal and type as sudo dpkg --configure -a. It will ask your password and type it . then press enter .
    Dont miss anything even it is small. one small pin is enough to bring down a man.

    When I read that, I understood that I had to type in the command. When it gives you an error like that, you have to run the command it tells you to, in this case type in the terminal (Ctr+Alt+T) :
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    It will ask you for your password, in which case you type it in (it won't show up by the way) .
    Note: This error was caused because you tried to install a package and then you suddenly aborted it.

    Please click "thread tools" at the top right hand corner of the thread and click "mark as solved" after this. Thanks.
