New Ubuntu Install using Wubi cannot get updates
Hi I am new to the linux scene so I have no idea why ubuntu is not working. The system I am using is Windows XP on a R40 laptop that has a broken ultrabay, so I can't install Ubuntu using ISO or running a live CD. Anyway, I used Wubi to install Ubuntu and I couldn't get Ubuntu to start. I checked the Web and it said that I needed to run Scandisk to find and fix errors automatically. I did that and Ubuntu started. Unfortunately, when I tried to install updates this is the error that occurred:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
Can anyone help me interpret this message and get my ubuntu running well? Thanks for your attention in this matter.
