Error with DPKG... Ubuntu Jaunty

Im trying to download Limewire and i go to the package installer and click on install package. It gives me a message that says "only one software management tool is allowed to run at a time. Please close the other application e.g. 'update manager' 'aptitude' or 'synaptic'." Well i only have the package installer open when it says this. Ive also tried to install packages with the terminal

tyler@tyler-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator configure
[sudo] password for tyler:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

Im such a newb guys and I dont know how to manually run anything. Any help would be much appreciated. Im using 2.6.28-14-generic version kernel btw.
