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).

Vojtěch Trefný suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #52: “'dpkg --configure -a' problem when trying to run Synaptic”.
