Error message when I try to unistall anything
When I try remove a program I get the following error:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
When I try to run the command given I get:
brian@ubuntu:~$ dpkg --configure -a
dpkg: requested operation requires superuser privilege
in the user priviliges screen all boxes are checked. Help!
Note I get the same error when I try to open the Synaptic pack manager.
Im running Ubuntu 8.10
Found the answer-- add sudo to the front of the command--- sudo dpkg --configure -a
