Thanks for reporting, but this is not a bug.
To solve your problem, just open terminal (Applications→Accesories→Terminal) and use command 'sudo dpkg --configure -a'

I CANNOT REPAIR dpkg interrupted I AM NEW TO UBUNTU

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

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get -f install

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

Hope this helps
