    Which terminal command did you use to install?

    In the meantime you could give this a try
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    Might be enough to fix this.

    Typing this command did nothing.

    Did the command return to a blank line or were there errors?

    Again, which terminal command did you use for the installation?
