Firefox update interrupted due to computer freeze


Firefox update tried to run while Chrome was open. It hung and I had no option but to do a hard reboot. Same error message appeared when I tried to update via the Update Manager(see screenshot). Restart did not fix the error either. Running
Quote:
dpkg --configure -a'
manually didn't get me anywhere because I do not know how to respond to the long list of commands that appear. As you can see, I am quite ignorant as far as terminal commands are concerned

Would hugely appreciate help to solve this problem. Thanks so much in advance

Could you please post that "long list," being sure to surround any terminal output with "code" tags which become available when you click the "Go Advanced" button beneath the compose post window?

Red face SOLVED

Problem solved. Rebooted, did an Update Manager Refresh and it downloaded and installed.
Sorry for the false alarm
