  • Linux Lite: 3.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel i3 - 2310M CPU@2.10Hz

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Nvidia
Every time I run  Install/Remove Software  I keep getting a failed notice and to manually run   'dpkg-configure-a'
   I guess this means typing it into the terminal......but when I do it says no known command.    And the  Lite Software doesn't work.....It says it can't find the package list.     Do I need to reinstall my 3.0?

Run 'dpkg-configure-a'  with a sudo prefix in the terminal.

I've done that  and  I wind up with     >      on the screen and nothing after that.  What's supposed to happen?   Because when I go back and click    Install/Remove Software    I still get the same error telling me to manually run  'dpkg-configure-a'

If you still have terminal open and still have ">" showing, hit CTRL+C to get back to normal prompt.


Proper format of the command you need to run is:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
