error message: dpkg was interrupted

Buenas tardes: Traté de instalar Java 7 en Linux Mint 12. Desde la página de Java descargué la versión para Linux y,en lugar de desempaquetar el archivo,como debería haber hecho, puse "descargar java en Linux Mint" en el buscador de Google y me remitió a una página en la que informaban que con tres comandos podía instalarlo. Así que abrí una terminal y puse: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java. Luego escribí sudo apt-get update y en ese momento me informó " dpkg was interrupted,you must manually run dpkg- -configure -a to correct de problem".
Luego quise descargarlo desde el Gestor de Paquetes Synaptic y me arroja el mismo error. El problema es que no sé corregirlo manualmente. Si alguien sabe cómo,les agradezco.

Then I wanted to download it from the Synaptic Package Manager and throws me the same error. The problem is I do not know correct it manually. If anyone knows how, I thank you.
