Great thank you - I did that, and got a long list of update lines in the emulator window which ended with:

Errors were encountered while processing:
 linux-firmware
 linux-image-generic
 linux-generic

Which I thought looked unpromising... but I ran updates again, which took ages but seems to have worked :-)

Cheers!

You will need to prefix with 'sudo' as it requires elevated privilege.

Code: [Select]

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a

You should be prompted for your password and it will run, then try upgrading again.

Hi

Just tried to download and install updates but got the following:

===========================
Install Updates Error log
===========================
Install Updates could not successfully download and install available updates.
Go to https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/ and paste the log below into a new or existing thread for assistance.

============ Log ===========

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


... should I just enter "dpkg --configure -a" into the terminal emulator, or is that just tooo obvious?

TIA!
