You shouldn't have to. You can rerun updates when ever you like..


Quote
can you please explain to me these commands do
Sure... I'll do my best  ;D

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get updateThis is the command line way you run updates in LL, if you use Run Updates from any of the gui based apps (Lite Updates/Updates from Welcome) this command runs in the background...

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install APP_NAME_HEREThis is the combination of 2 commands... The 1st command (update) runs updates and upon success(the &&) install the app listed.
apt-get install is the install command of apt-get essentially what Synaptic does in the background. There are other variables remove purge, update and others.

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -aThis was actually being told to you within the error messages when updating. At some point there was an interruption this command corrected it. dpkg relates to the base package system.

I hope firenice03 doesn't mind me adding some additional information for clarification.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
is updating the system only in the sense that the software lists get updated according to the active software repositories!
The above command is not updating the system itself, i.e. is not downloading and installing any software packages. For this to happen you need to run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade

Hope that helps :)
