shawn@shawn-Aspire-T690 ~ $ sudo dpkg configure
dpkg: error: need an action option

Type dpkg --help for help about installing and deinstalling packages[*];
Use 'apt' or 'aptitude' for user-friendly package management;
Type dpkg -Dhelp for a list of dpkg debug flag values;
Type dpkg --force-help for a list of forcing options;
Type dpkg-deb --help for help about manipulating *.deb files;

Options marked[*] produce a lot of output - pipe it through 'less' or 'more' !

What were you trying to install with the dpkg cmd before you closed the terminal?

i was just trying to do a maintnace command. I seemed to have succesfully installed spotify but im getting this code when im doing sudo apt-get update:
Code:
W: GPG error: http://repository.spotify.com stable InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 13B00F1FD2C19886
Is linux not ment to be used with these fun programs (kodi,spotify etc..?)

There is no sudo preceedingthis command, that is why you received the error:
Code:
shawn@shawn-Aspire-T690 ~ $ apt-get clean
Remeber that doing something with sudo (super-user do) is doing it as if you were root who has rights to do anything but doing it without sudo is doing it as yourself with limited rights -- this is for security reasons and to "protect you from yourself".

OK, sorry, I missed that. Any repository should be signed so that you know you're getting what you ask for -- to use them you need their key.
It's worth reading around the subject now and being willing to have to make mistakes and reinstall as in no time you'll find yourself answering this kind of question yourself .

Just remember to only enter that command when you trust the source of the software. While I know that people may not like or trust Spotify in their business I think them only a moderate risk to install a package or two from, but please look into this yourself.
