And what is your question?

Did you manually run it?

Hello

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.
