Error after downloading updates, wireless connection gone, error code, help
I just downloaded updates, a large amount of them, then during the updates an error code appeared on both my dell inspiron mini 9 netbooks running ubuntu and linux, it states: an error occured the following details are provided: then in the error box it says, E: dpkg was interrupted. you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. then below that line it says, E:_cache->open() failed, please report. I tried running the 'dpkg --configure -a' under the run key but nothing happens. Also, one of the netbooks does not have a wireless connection option anymore after this download..
It also has 6 more updates listed but tells me my disk space is empty. I never installed anything onto this netbook and never had storage issues until these updates. Whenever I go into synaptic package manager the box stays gray and the error box appears with the above error. also, it asks me to report it but to who??
Please help me
