Cannot run Update Manager

Asked by Kjurgelewicz on 2006-10-16

Whenever I try to run update manager I get an error that says i dpkg was interrupted and tells me I have to run dpkg --configure -a manually to fix the problem. When I try to run this command it tells me I need to have superuser priviledges which I dont know how to get I am logged on as the administrator.
