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:
prompt:~$ *sudo dkpg - -configure -a*
bash: *sudo: command not found
prompt:~$ sudo dkpg configure a
[sudo] password for <user>:
sudo: dkpg: command not found
Do you see the difference between
(what you wrote)
(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)
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.
