dpkg-configure - command not found

**Never mind! the Actual command is:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
Problem solved.**
I was doing an update and I have broken packages. It told me to do a dpkg-configure -a to fix the broken packages.

sudo dpkg-configure -a
I get a command not found error. How do I install dpkg-configure?

"dpkg-configure" doesn't exist. - There is "dpkg --configure packagename".

The easiest way, however, should be using Synaptic (System --> Administration --> Synaptic) to search for parts of the offending package's name, and trying to remove it.
