Dpkg Error “Dpkg Was Interrupted”
This is a small post about dpkg error. Dpkg is tool used to manage package installation, removing, update of distributions like Debian, Ubuntu. Actually dpkg can be used distributions like Fedora, CentOS, RedHat but their default package manager is rpm.
Here is the problem while install package with apt-get or dpkg directly the operation it interrupted. After trying again to install a package we get an error like “dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run”
We need to repair dpkg package database in order to resume
apt-get update operation. We can run dpkg to reconfigure package database like below and correct the problem.
$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
The interrupted package installation with dpkg is completed with success.
