need help to run terminal instructions

Asked by Denny Young on 2012-09-15

I can't run upgrades in ubuntu because it says I must run 'sudo-dpkg-configure-a' manually in ubuntu to fix the problem and I just started using linux and have no idea where to even start trying to do this. Can you please help?
