Hi - it doesn't appear to be a bug. it has given you the fix but perhaps
, being new here, you don't understand what it is telling you so I will
try and help.
Somehow the package manager was previously interrupted and your system
is in an inconsistent state. To fix this do the following:-
1) Using your mouse select Applications then Accessories then Terminal
2) Type in the following exactly as written:-
sudo dpkg --configure -a
3)When it asks for your password type it in
4) Once this has completed you can should now be able to press the
install Updates button.
Let us know how you get on!
