Thank you for you report, but this is not real bug, so I'm converting this to a question...

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

To solve your problem just open Terminal (Applications→Accesories→Terminal) and type "sudo dpkg --configure -a" (without quotation marks).

Can you help with this problem?
