    dpkg interrupted ??

    I am running the latest Ubuntu, and upgrades have been great,until today. I got this message:

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

    Any suggestions? I went to terminal and typed in on the command line
    dpkg -- configure -a

    and it tells me I need superuser privileges.

    Well, I am the admin, and logged in as such, what more is there that I am missing? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    sudo temporarily gives you admin privileges, so you don't need to be admin all the time.
