  • Linux Lite: 3.8 32bit
Hi, when I try to run the Install Updates program, I get this message:

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

This has never happened before. Can anyone help?
Thanks.

Hi mweelrea, and a warm welcome to the LL community  :)
 
Turning to your problem - this means the updating process was interrupted.
Sometimes this happened to me. With the Linux Lite updating process, it continues in the background, evidence for the ongoing process disappearing from your display, only showing again when the process has completed (which can take several minutes). So, it's easy with LL to accidentally shutdown your computer while updating is in progress.

To complete the updating, open a terminal.
Type the following:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
It might ask for your password, then let it run to completion.

Hope this helps.
Mike

Linux-user since 2014. 64bit OS installed in Legacy mode on MBR (msdos/ext4) formatted SSDs (except the pi which uses a micro SDHC card):
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - Manjaro (tried LL3 series but lagged)
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.4/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working beautifully)
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL really zippy!) - my daily driver  :-)
