Synaptic pakketbeheer

Asked by Vincent023 on 2009-02-22

I can not open synaptic pakketbeheer

My computer wrote this...
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

How and where must i write...
sudo dpkg --configure -a

Please can you write the answer in Dutch

Thanks
Vincent

Update: Inmiddels heb ik mijn terminalvenster gevonden
Update: vincent@vincent-desktop:~$ dpkg --configure -a
dpkg: deze bewerking kan alleen uitgevoerd worden door de beheerder
'het lijkt dus te werken, maar het terminalvenster ziet mij niet als beheerder...hoe los ik dit op ?'

I found the answer:

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.
