Update Error preventing me from the internet!


Hello, I was surfing the web . I decided to hit the update icon.It did not finish updating before the power was interrupted. How I get an Error occurred. stating, " E:dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run'dpkg--configure -a'to correct the problem. E:_cache->open()failed,please report.
I am lost how to correct this script error.I am sure it is easy. I can open google earth that was downloaded, but not the web. I am frustrated. I am new to Linux,but I am happy with what I have seen so far.

Thank You, Carey

It says right there.

BTW, what distro are you using?

I am still unsure I need to correct this problem. Which Icon or where do I enter the correct script at? I am still lost.
