Bash command needed to remove failed install


An app failed to load properly and now i'm stuck in a sequence I don;t understand the solution for.

sudo apt-get autoremove

E: dpkg was interupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up libgdata.4-cil (
* Installing 14 assemblies from libgdata.4-cil into mono

It just hangs here. What should i do?
