Error When Running Ubuntu Update Manager
 
2009-11-27-1045 (2245gmt)

I just attempted running "Update Manager" to check for any updates to my
Ubuntu. I got the
following error notice:
================================================== ===========

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure
-a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

================================================== ===========

I did as indicated above -- "sudo dpkg" and entered my password. Below
is the results.

================================================== ===========

michael@michael-desktop:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
[sudo] password for michael:
Setting up ttf-mscorefonts-installer (3.0) ...

The first thing that you should do when you run into a problem like this
is to check:

1. http://packages.ubuntu.com and search for the package information.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/ttf-mscorefonts-installer

2. Then at the upper right side,
Ubuntu Resources:

* Bug Reports
Click on 'Bug Reports' and see if there is a report similar to your
problem. And it looks like there is:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/msttcorefonts/+bug/464422
[package ttf-mscorefonts-installer 3.0 failed to install/upgrade]

Have a look through that bug report to see if you can find a solution.
Alternatively, you can use ttf-liberation, or download from the location
that the ttf-mscorefonts-installer uses directly:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/corefonts/
(the latter not necessarily recommended).
