Welcome to LQ:
Quote:
manually run dpkg-configure-a
That is not a question.

If it is urgent, please actually write a clear question. What is the problem with running

dpkg-configure -a

(The only way to run this is "manually" - i.e. enter the command at a terminal prompt. But I suspect you actually want "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a".)

Since it is urgent: do not write "urgent" as a title. Write your question as the title. See the LQ tutorials section for tips writing questions, and the advice link in my sig.

It is also useful to people trying to help you if you supply your distro name + release number and some idea of which part of the world you live in. You can edit your profile so this shows automatically (see mine, left.)

Note: a title of "urgent" will only be answered by people who feel they have the time and patience to try to figure out what your question is about. These people are not exactly rushed themselves, so the reply will almost always be slow. Thus the title has exactly the opposite effect. Don't do it.

You may also find this web page helpful:

As Simon says (lol), you need to use the sudo command to execute dpkg-configure

If you encounter any errors, you can post them here. That will allow us to help you more.

I've updated your title to something slightly more useful until we can figure out what your actual question is. In the future if you could use useful titles and actually ask a question that would be immensely more helpful.

Thanks!

You should also consider posting to justlinux.com. They are very capable there, but even less tolerant of non-descriptive subject headers.

That is because the actual answer is 42.
