Smile getting error while install wine on linux mint


i got error while installing wine on linux mint

what would be the problem

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

The error message in your initial post repeated by EDDY1 in the last post told you exactly what to do and that is the first thing you should have done.

When installing software with apt-get, you always need to preface the command with sudo, maybe you know that and do although it's not clear from your posts?

EULA is End User License Agreement and you should be able to see whatever the agreement is and read it. With some software, if you don't click yes the software won't install.
