When I try to install something or update I get this error message:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
To correct this problem just open Terminal (Applications → Accessories → Terminal) and type:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
Give your user password when requested. You will not see anything, but type it and press enter.
Then retry to update and/or to install desired package.
