please disregard anything rahilmaknojia said about rpmforge, installing and how... he was wrong.

The error you got told you what to do to attempt to correct the problem:

did you run:
dpkg --configure -a
?
What was the result?
i dont know how to run dpkg configure manually how do i do that

Please continue to post to this thread instead of sending personal messages - What I suggest may not be optimal or not even right. By posting to the forums others with more expertise can also try to help your cause.

anonymized quote from your message to me about what you did:
Quote:
prompt:~$ *sudo dkpg - -configure -a*
bash: *sudo: command not found
prompt:~$ sudo dkpg configure a
[sudo] password for <user>:
sudo: dkpg: command not found
prompt:~$
Do you see the difference between

*sudo (what you wrote)
and
sudo (what you should have written)
?

and the difference between
dpkg --configure -a (that is the command the error-message suggested you should run - I also wrote this)
and
dkpg - -configure -a* (that is what you told the computer as the command)
?
Those are commands - the computer cannot tell what you might mean - you got to write the exact command

The GUI frontend to "apt" and "dpkg" in Ubuntu is "synaptic" - you get to it via "System" --> Administration --> Synaptic Package Manager"
You can do all necessary tasks there and through it instead of having to use the command-line if you don't like it.

It may help to copy and paste the text if you are having trouble seeing the difference. For example, highlight everything between the quotes in "dpkg --configure -a", right-click and select copy (or hold CTRL and press C), open a terminal window and right-click in the window to paste (or hold SHIFT and press INSERT, or possibly CTRL and V)

So your terminal windows should now read:
$> dpkg --configure -a

(the first two characters represent the prompt, which is there before you type anything, yours may be slightly different)

What am I missing here? Wine should be available using the GUI package manager--Adept or Synaptic.

And don't forget Crossover. Eventually, it costs a few $, but you can install free for a trial period.

Where is it you are "going" - describe if you don't know! Is it a graphical interface?

You already tried that - but misspelled the commands as I read your reply.
Read the post and use cut & paste.
Do you not see the difference between the commands you say you typed and the ones I posted?

Well - that would be a good thing to know...
I assumed you took the time and actually looked through your software menus and found it.
How about doing that now?
I think in Ubuntu you find it in:
Applications --> Accessories: Terminal

Please tell us what it said - literally! - exactly!
What package is broken?

You should also now have a look at the "Update Manager" function in your System --> Administration menu
as well as look for the "Synaptic Package Manager" in the same menu.
Those are graphical tools help you do the tasks without having to use a terminal and the command-line.

ps.: why do you quote yourself?
