dpkg --configure -a

And don't forget the "sudo" (like I did) :)

Hello Mark

In order to become Root in Ubuntu, one needs to enable the Root account. Below you'll find the steps to enable your Root account in Ubuntu:

In the terminal: (applications -> accessories -> terminal)

$ sudo passwd root <enter regular user password> <enter new Root password> <repeat new Root password>
