Binary package hint: dpkg

Studio 7.04: Tried installing VirtualBox. Installer window open for 3 hrs. eventually re-booted system. Now add/remove apps give error: E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

Thanks for reporting, but this not bug.
To solve your problem just open terminal (Applications→Accesories→Terminal) and use command "sudo dpkg --configure -a" (without quotation marks).
