Yo the advise given was correct,however since your a newbie duffmckagan should have mentnioned you need to open a terminal to do this.Open terminal
type dpkg --configure -a . Hope this helps. What distro are you running?

" requested operation requires superuser privilege"

Type "sudo" before the command; It will prompt you for your password; Enter your password and you will have superuser privileges.
