On my notebook I get A message to run 'dpkg-- configuire-a' how do I do it?

Asked by Lenward Statham on 2008-02-25

I can't seem to find a way to run this 'dpkg-- configuire-a'. Can you let me know how to do this?

Applications→Accesories→Terminal→ use command "sudo dpkg-- configuire-a" (without quotation marks).

Vojtěch Trefný suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #52: “Can't install new software and updates”.

Please open a Terminal from the menu Applications->Accessories->Terminal and type:

sudo dpkg --configure -a

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

Then to upgrade from terminal:

sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Hope this helps
