Fix an error message I get when updating Ubuntu 8.10

Posted 01-01-2009 at 07:44 PM by Dwight Randall

Hello,
I have installed Ubuntu 8.10 as a program on my Windows XP laptop. The Boot Manager works fine, and I have previously installed Ubuntu updates successfully. Now I can;t.

I receive the notification that I can install 88 updates. When I choose to install the updates, I get a message that says:

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

Can anyone tells what steps I must follow to correct this problem, so that I can install the 88 updates and get future updates for Ubuntu 8.10?

Thank you in advance.

Dwight Randall

    I donít make the rules here and Iím not a forum cop. I do however recommend you ask your question in the forum of your choice. I would be willing to bet that your question will get more and faster responses over there. RDFC
